Wrote another article for the Stanford Political Journal a couple weeks back but forgot to post it to the blog — enjoy! Remember to follow for spectacularly well-written articles.

On a personal note: been up in London and Warwick for the last week (skipping a week of classes in the process… Got lots to catch up on), so look forward to a post on the Warwick Economics Summit soon. I know I’ve made a lot of empty promises about new posts, but trust me on this one.
