$18 in 1969 is the equivalent of about $120 in 2015. Gotta account for inflation dude.

|5 weeks 4 days ago||insightful or interesting||
You know, not every rant is interesting or insightful. Some are neither.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Right||
I was mostly joking, but I guess this didn't come out too well in writing.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||friends||
A lot of my grad student friends lived on the west side, just before Wasthenaw Dairy, or in Kerry town (north of campus). All walking distance to the diag, and reasonable rent.
Just tell her to avoid the neighborhood south of campus (basically between the diag and the stadium). It's full of dirty, dirty undergrads.

Basically, the only way this turns into a traumatic experience is if you (the parent) make it one.

Relax a bit. Adolescents discovering sexuality, nothing weird about that.
Make sure you talk to your daughter about the fact that porn doesn't portray real life sexual interactions accurately. She needs to know what to expect when she's exposed to it (she will be, regardless of what you do).
The other girl's sexual orientation is not your concern. Different people are attracted by different things; it's all part of our beautiful diverse world.
No big deal, really.

Hopefully his inbox isn't flooded by those requests...

Made the same drive a month ago. Sucks.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Profs are way different||
In the fields I know, the profs from the AA campus are at a complete different place than does in Dearborn in terms of research. The AA folks are field-defining. The ones from Dearborn are ok/good, but don't travel in the same circles. This makes a big difference, as the AA students are much more likely to become acquainted with cutting-edge work and top-flight individuals.
Sounds crass, but it's a reality.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Causal identification||
As lots of people have noted, the main problem for inference here is that first round players are better than second round players, so the "round effect" might be a result of prior factors rather than the draft process itself.
If you want to improve causal identification of the "round effect", you could do what folks call "regression discontinuity": essentially, you compare players who fell right next to important cut points. For instance, compare the three last players of the first round to the three first players of the second round. In principle, there shouldn't be much fundamental difference in quality between those two sets of players. This could give you a better estimate of the causal effect of being selected in an early round.

I was expecting you to use the MGoQuestion from Mattison's presser last week?

good post, but not 100% comfortable with,this new "let's laugh at the crazy African american names" tradition.

Thanks for sharing!

It's about what Average Joe who watches Tom Brady get a truck might want to buy.

Well done on the footnote. You know your readers well :)

|25 weeks 5 days ago||That is, zero sense if you||
That is, zero sense if you think about it as an investment in human capital. If you think of your education as a "consumption good", and that he truly enjoys the experience that much more, that's a different matter.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Labor economics says "no"||
There is a lot of serious research in labor economics which suggests that, for most students, the whole undergraduate degree is not even worth that much. Doubling the cost makes zero sense.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||Wow, this looks like shit||
Sorry, I like Hackett and all, but this watch looks like crap.
|31 weeks 1 day ago||Center not study||
This is not for one study. Faculty salaries, grad student support, organizing/hosting conferences (expensive), and then actual research support (also expensive).
Great scholars at that center. Well deserved.

Simply beautiful. You're the man.

Can't figure out if that's a reference W's big brown beaver or to Southbound pachyderm
