I am 87% sure my local paper doesn't know how pie charts work. http://t.co/TFAogiJVOB

That's not only a win-win, but a free productivity boost that helps explain how wages can rise (and eventually how we can get GDP growth without lots of inflation). Less commuting FTW!

WFH saves employees about 70 minutes a day on average. Most (about 60 minutes) from no commute, and the rest (about 10 minutes) from less preparation in the morning. About 1/2 of this saved time goes to working more and 1/2 to leisure/tasks, so employers and employees benefit.

I feel like in those conditions, the hardest part is just staying safely vertical until you make it back home.

Real talk: People will say the hardest part is getting out the door — it’s not. The hardest part is getting to the halfway mark. ✅

Feels pretty spot on to me. Maybe a bit more clarity on balance sheet unwinding (or not), but the market is working to find its level already (roughly there I think), so the Fed can stay boring.

My guess is Powell is perfectly happy with where rates are, where stocks are, and where Fed Funds Futures odds are. I suspect he says nothing new today and gets out of that presser as fast as he can.

One example of this is that many top-5 papers are presented at 5-10 top departments first, to expose them to potential reviewers, incorporate suggestions, and basically smooth the path for submission. 99% of academic economists cannot do that.

People like to talk about meritocracy in economics but... Networks & connections drive many decisions. The JPE case isn't unique. I know of many such cases in the top 5's. Those with access, an elite few, renegotiate journal decisions. This is elitism at its best not meritocracy

Does this mean the Georgia state economist is the 7th best in the country??? #AskingForAFriend Seriously, we have lots of job openings, it's a great place to live, and we want more workers because companies keep moving here. So, if you want to work, please move to Georgia.

When Daron was a little boy, his mom once sent him to a grocery store to buy 1kg of potatoes. Daron came home with 7kg of potatoes, 5kg of tomatoes, 4 loaves of bread, a bag of rice, a half carcass of a goat, two chickens, and three trays of baklava.
