Best of #econtwitter - Week of May 22, 2022 [3/3]
Welcome readers old and new to this week’s edition of Best of Econtwitter. Thanks to those sharing suggestions, over email or on Twitter @just_economics.
This is part three of three.
Editorial note: This week marks the two-year birthday of the newsletter 🥳. Always happy to see people getting value out of the weekly emails — we passed the 2,000-subscriber mark earlier this year — especially relative to the low marginal cost of production.
A two-question survey / more general opportunity for feedback here! Only you can prevent selection bias, by filling it out :)
^DeepMind going after agent-based models 😬
Additional (1-tweet) commentary: “One person's cooperation is another's collusion...”
More: peer review in aid bureaucracy; emigration of indentured servants from colonial India; methods for predicting race; more RCTs for Medicaid, please; private health care for US vets; framing public policies as changing the status quo decreases public support for them
^recommended replies/QTs… even if the purpose of this newsletter is to disintermediate econtwitter (at the risk of Grossman-Stiglitzing ourselves)
