There are approximately 8700 qualified opportunity zones located across the US with 169 in New Jersey. What do they all have in common? We take a closer look in this EXCLUSIVE commentary on the subject.

In December 2017, The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law.

This federal law provides substantial tax incentives to tax payers who re-invest their capital gains in long term investments in certain economic distressed communities.

These communities, designated as low income census tracts are called Qualified Opportunity Zones (“QOZ”). There are approximately 8700 QOZs located across the United States. There are 169 in New Jersey located in 75 municipalities. What they all have in common is that they are all in need of private capital to spur economic development. It is estimated that $6 trillion in capital gains are waiting in the wings to be reinvested by taxpayers into these geographic areas.

As New Orleans experiences downtown residential growth and urban economic resurgence, the timing is perfect for the Aspen Institute Socrates Program to return to the Crescent City and examine why residential and job growth in many cities often results in less diversity and inclusion.

The seminar will be moderated by Lyneir Richardson, the executive director of The Center for Urban Entrepreneurship and Economic Development, a Rutgers Business School research and practitioner-oriented center. The salon will examine ways to expand opportunity, foster entrepreneurship and preserve the spirit of continual re-invention that animates American cities as they grow again.

From October 19 through 26, Montclair State University will be celebrating the sixth annual Women Entrepreneurship Week with speakers, conferences and other activities. At a time when many people are trying to tear down gender-based barriers, the divisions between men and women are still enough to warrant gender-specific events like this one, according to some experts.

“I was coaching a woman that had her own perfume line, and she was having a hard time moving her inventory,” recalled Jasmine Cordero-West, an associate director at Rutgers Business School Newark and New Brunswick who focuses on entrepreneurship programs. “As we are talking, she tells me that she used to work in a jewelry store and she was able to sell the product successfully there. I realized that the issue she had was selling her own product. She lacked confidence.”
Once she realized that, the business owner was able to sell more, Cordero West said.

During the War of 1812 (which didn’t end until 1815), British Navy ships began, on the night of September 13, 1814, a heavy bombardment of Fort McHenry, a promontory protecting the inner harbor of Baltimore. A giant American flag, measuring 30 x 42 feet, could be seen flying over the fort from long distances.

A Maryland lawyer, Francis Scott Key, very much an American patriot, viewed the bombardment while he was on board a British Navy vessel, which in several accounts is identified as the H.M.S. Minden. Why was he on a British ship? It was a gentlemanly arrangement. Key had gone on a sloop from Baltimore to negotiate with the British commander for the release of American prisoners, including the well-connected physician Dr. William Beanes.[3] Initially rebuffed, Key finally got permission to return with the released American prisoners. But by then, it was too late. Since both Key and Beanes knew about the plan to bombard Fort McHenry, all the Americans were detained through the night of September 13. They witnessed “…the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air…” in cannonades from as many as 19 British vessels.

Eight years ago, Michael Lemanski’s grand vision to redevelop downtown Durham was crashing.

In the midst of this slide, Lemanski found a safe harbor at UNC-Chapel Hill’s School of Government as the director of a new university program helping local communities find developers to rebuild rundown areas. Lemanski took on the job with a $90,000 starting salary, and soon became viewed as a guru for the redevelopment of downtowns — including Durham’s — in three states.

“Just because you are doing good doesn’t mean you can do it any way you want,” said Joanne Ciulla, a Rutgers University professor.
Ciulla, the Rutgers business ethics expert, said those who use public office addresses as contacts for private business raise the question as to whether they are using public resources for private purposes.

By way of example, consider the situation of Jeff Bezos. Assume that he originally invested $100,000 to form Amazon and that the fair market value of his stock is now $100 billion. His tax basis would be $100,000, and if he sold his stock, he would be taxed on every dollar he received in excess of that amount. But if Bezos passed away tomorrow, the “step up in basis” rule would erase his entire accumulated gain from income taxation. His heirs would inherit the Amazon stock with a $100 billion tax basis, and could sell the stock tax free, depriving the Treasury of nearly $25 billion.

There seems to be a lot of saber-rattling these days and it got me to thinking. So, when did we last win a war?

I recently turned 68, a baby boomer who has been extremely lucky to be born in what is arguably the country of greatest opportunity and wealth during its height of power and influence, the second half of the 20th century.

As a marketing professional for my career, and nearly 20 years a professor of same, there is great learning to be gotten from studying our past. As each semester nears completion I challenge my students to look back on the full term, to learn lessons from our experiences and what they might suggest going forward. And as a trained history teacher, I believe there are important lessons from the past as we strategize and plan for the future, in business and in our political environment.

What is the biggest lesson you gained during your MBA and how did you apply it at work?

One of my goals in joining the program was to hone my leadership skills – and execute decisions with relevant information. While previously I just knew how to make the right choices, I did not fully understand the reasons “why?” A year into the program, I was able to use every bit of learning I encountered. The real-world application orientation of the program – through its emphasis on market analysis, and investigations of journal and news articles in Managerial Statistics, Business Law, and Economics – helped me relate theory to practice. Leadership starts not just with knowledge, but also with people skills and with a genuine interest in improving the lives of people.

Professor Langdana’s “Cycle-Of-One” leadership lessons rescued me from some sticky corner-office situations and this mode of learning and its implementation helped me and my organization accomplish double-digit growth in revenue and size. The beauty of the EMBA program lies in the gradual build-up and enlightenment that comes with it over two years. In the “language of MBA,” I consider it an utter waste of an investment if an MBA degree doesn’t make you a better human being because at the receiving end of all decisions, are people whose lives you can impact as a leader.

Something extraordinary is happening behind the scenes at Impossible Foods.
The company has seen a huge surge in demand. And though you wouldn't know it from stepping into its Bay Area headquarters, it's in a frenzy.

As part of two recent field surveys, Mason Ameri, an assistant professor of professional practice at Rutgers Business School, sent out thousands of job applications featuring highly qualified applicants who are living with a spinal cord injury, Asperger’s syndrome or other conditions. He found that applicants for jobs that involved significant face-to-face interaction drew less interest from employers if they disclosed their condition.

But for those people applying for jobs in software development and data entry that do not require much face-to-face interaction, “we found no evidence of discrimination,” Ameri said. “Technology has become a mediator.”

What do the best business credit cards have in common?

The best business cards have low interest rates, small annual fees, high credit limit, and attractive miles/points that can be used for travel discounts. I also think it would be great - perhaps one a quarter - to have some flexibility “to skip a payment for 60 days” without negative credit reporting. This could help with small business cash flow management during periods when accounts receivable have not been collected.

Innovation is in our DNA: Oemer Akyazici, Rutgers Business School International EMBA, Shanghai '09

While many executives might relish the opportunity to talk about their business achievements, Oemer Akyazici is quite the opposite. Rather than spend too much time reflecting on the past, the Schuler China CEO prefers to keep his eyes firmly focused on what’s happening now and in the future.

“A company like Schuler should never be satisfied with its past success in light of rapidly changing market conditions,” Oemer explains.

“Of course, thanks to our outstanding employees, we’re solidly positioned in many different areas. However, if we wish to remain competitive in the future, it’s essential we generate a constant stream of product innovations.”

It is difficult to understand why some people (typically progressives) are so hung up on the issue of inequality. It is absolutely essential for progress.
Think of any innovation: the car, the airplane, pharmaceuticals, the color television, the video recorder, the DVD player, the iPad, the iPhone, and so on.
It is the wealthy who first demand these things. Next, it is the innovators and entrepreneurs, driven by the profit motive, who bring them to the market.
Competition then drives down the prices, making it possible for the average person, even the poor, to buy the items.
Some will call this trickle-down economics, but then has anybody heard of trickle-up economics?
The Soviets, Eastern Europeans, Cubans and Venezuelans have tried it.
In their "quest for equality" by redistributing wealth, they have been enormously successful in redistributing misery.

In the Jewish community, Rhonda F. Levine, professor emerita of sociology at Colgate University, is best known for her book “Class, Networks, and Identity: Replanting Jewish Lives from Nazi Germany to Rural New York.” For that work, Levine interviewed Jewish refugees – some of them local – about their lives after they arrived in America.

Her new, ambitious work, “When Race Meets Class: African Americans Coming of Age in a Small City,” focuses on people’s lives as they occurred over a 15-year period.

The publisher describes “When Race Meets Class” as “a rare, 15-year ethnography, [that] follows the lives of individual, low-income African American youth from the beginning of high school into their early adult years. Levine shows how their interaction and experience with multiple institutions (family, school, community) and individuals (parents, friends, teachers, coaches, strangers) shape their hopes, fears, aspirations, and worldviews.”

According to Nancy DiTomaso, distinguished professor at Rutgers Business School, “‘When Race Meets Class’ provides a much-needed contribution to the understanding of how race, class, and gender reproduce inequality.”

While stereotypes and security concerns are often used to defend discriminatory actions, they don’t have a basis in fact, said Jerome Williams, a consumer psychologist at Rutgers University-Newark who has researched what he calls “retail racism” for more than 25 years.

In one case, Williams found that black people made up 10 percent of a department store’s customers but 90 percent of those stopped by the store’s security team. The store’s explanation: Security was in place to prevent shoplifting.

There is no evidence that black Americans steal more often than anyone else, Williams said. There is evidence that black Americans are more closely monitored and more often accused, then more often arrested and prosecuted by a criminal justice system with well-documented biases.

As a long-term practitioner of marketing, now over 40 years in duration, I have often been challenged by the concept of “The Brand,” what it communicates, what it means, what it stands for and how it is integral to an organization’s position and ultimate success in the market. Bringing a background in consumer packaged goods (CPG) that incorporated executive-level marketing and sales stints on the client, vendor, and agency sides of the business, and now as a professor of same, I am often struck by our approach to positioning our brands, and wonder why we do not take a similar approach to ourselves. Are you not a “Brand” to those considering your value to the organization? A brand to be adopted (or hired) or rejected in favor of another whose potential is deemed superior. Isn’t that how we make purchase decisions? Isn’t that how hiring professionals approach the employee recruitment process? Is there really a difference?

Whether a company joins—and remains—a member of National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) or any trade group depends on how much it agrees with the association’s activities and how its membership in the association affects its reputation, said Michael Barnett, a professor of management & global business at Rutgers Business School who has studied trade groups.

“[Trade associations] are effective by influencing what others outside the industry think of the industry, like regulators, like customers, like communities,” Barnett said.

Trade groups help shield individual companies from the public relations backlash of lobbying on behalf of their industry. They often work as organizing forces to oppose regulation of industries and to lobby government for favorable laws and policies.

“The member firms want cover, they want that legitimacy, they want an improved reputation, but they don’t want to do those things necessary to gain that,” Barnett said. “It’s sort of like they’ve hired a personal trainer and they want that trainer to say, ‘Eat cake and you’re going to get fit.’”

During Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, he vociferously complained that the tax system, indeed the entire economy, was rigged. Turns out, he’s right: The tax system is rigged. However, what Trump repeatedly failed to point out, and what is confirmed by a revelatory new New York Times report showing his huge losses and paltry tax payments over a decade, is that he and his family were and are benefactors of this system.

Consider some salient facts: Income based on labor, which is how the vast majority of working stiffs make a living, bears both payroll and income tax. The combined tax rate is often in excess of 50%. By way of stark contrast, the tax on capital income is taxed only once and at tax rates less than half imposed on labor, often 23.8%.

Small businesses can be targeted “not only for their information, but because they may be a gateway to larger companies,” said Jaideep Vaidya, a Rutgers University management science and information systems professor. “That’s what happened in the massive Target breach,” when digital credentials — reportedly hacked from a third-party HVAC vendor — were used to get into the retailer’s systems, snatching payment and personal information from millions of customers.

The fallout from a hack like that can decimate a small business, he warned. “Once customers find out — and they likely will, depending on state-level breach reporting requirements — they may abandon you.”

But securing the vaults doesn’t have to break a small business’ budget. A good defense will comprise multiple layers, he said, including commercially available — and relatively inexpensive — antivirus software, in addition to a firewall that can help shield a system from unauthorized access.

“Best practices include choosing complicated passwords, and changing them periodically,” he said. “Multifactor authorization [after a password is entered, a separate code will be sent to a mobile device, and that must be entered too] also enhances security. Additionally, software can be configured to automatically accept security updates, which are an important safety factor.”

Tax attorney Jay Soled, a professor at Rutgers Business School and director of the university’s Masters in Taxation Program, said accelerated write-offs essentially allow companies to expense anything they purchase.

“It juices up the economy on a temporary basis and minimizes their tax burden,” he said.

At the same time, Soled noted companies in general have become very proficient in parking their income offshore. That causes companies, for tax purposes, to avoid showing a lot of profit.

Still, he cautioned that if companies pay more in taxes, that ultimately gets passed on to someone else.

In June 2017, another study, this one from researchers at the Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations, found Airbnb users with disabilities were less likely to be preapproved and more likely to be rejected outright.“The rise of internet-based platforms for some services threatens to perpetuate and possibly increase their exclusion. Many of the newly-available services are not fully accessible and may create more opportunities for both intentional and unintentional discrimination,” wrote Mason Ameri, the lead researcher.

The study found that only 25% of guests with a spinal cord injury were preapproved, compared with 75% of guests without disabilities. Even hosts who advertised their listing as “wheelchair accessible” were more likely to approve a guest without a disability (80%) than a guest with a spinal cord injury (60%).
