Paper summary threads
^(part of a) huge field experiment on the spillover effects of early childhood programs. Very good discussion from Johannes Stroebel here on significance

More paper threads: on OSHA enforcement; on asset-backed security design; on households choosing schools with low value-added; on a theory of gender and self-image bias; on temporal mismatch in city infrastructure due to innovation
Year in review
