It’s been a hectic few weeks, but it felt great to finally hand in my thesis this afternoon. I have dropped on a page the abstract of my paper and a graphical walk-through of my findings. The paper itself is available here. I’m especially grateful to my thesis advisor, Oded Galor, for so many conversations and comments. I’m also very appreciative of many friends for helpful discussions along the way about my findings (and particularly to Chris and Christine for comments this week!).
I’ll be presenting my thesis to the Economics department May 1 (anyone is welcome to attend). I’ll also be making a less technical presentation at Theories in Action on Sunday, April 28.
