♥️ to all job market candidates with fewer flyouts than they'd hoped for or feared.
This is a grinding, anxiety-producing time in the process.
Hang in there. Take care of yourself. Keep your committee informed of news. Don't hide.
The spring 2nd-round of matches can be kinder

And to all of you for your interest in my work 🙏v
No menos importante: a nivel individual, la movilidad humana es un camino rápido para la prosperidad y para salir de la pobreza. En este sentido, es muy interesante el trabajo de economistas como Lan Pritchett, Claudio Montenegro y @m_clem.
About 1 out of every 5 child care workers in the U.S. is an immigrant.
Do immigration enforcement policies have downstream implications for the child care market?
I'm excited to share my new WP w/ @JHB_econ & @Umair_at_ASU, which studies this question.
A new book updates the age-old supremacist case for extremely restrictive immigration barriers. @AlexNowrasteh has taken it upon himself to provide an erudite and rigorous response. twitter.com/AlexNowrasteh/…

A new book argues that today's typical immigrants permanently undermine social trust and thus economic prosperity.
@AlexNowrasteh knows the trust literature much better, and offers a master class on what it does (not) show.

A typically generous from-the-heart tweet from the amazing scholar and impossibly generous @m_clem, whose move to another chapter in his life closes for me Volume 1 in the life of @CGDev. twitter.com/m_clem/status/…
The great American Ben Franklin refused to give a platform to hatred in his private printing business.
He was often told that this restricted 'free speech'.
His answer was simple: You are free to make your own platform.

My wonderful great uncle Giel was executed at the side of a road while being force-marched out of KL Auschwitz.
A soldier shot him in the neck, under policy personally ordered by Adolf Hitler.
US politicians who make common cause with Hitler apologists deserve the unspeakable.
Delighted to see my work with @ethanglewis featured in the latest @nberpubs Digest.
We study how US firms react when they are denied at random the opportunity to hire immigrants for low-skill jobs.
