This is not my website. It's a bare-bones collection of pages for rapid access, quick update, and reduced (git-control) fuss, focusing on just my writings or lectures or R code. Most of what appears below is auto-generated.
(For my TikTok videos or Insta snaps, you'll have to look elsewhere.)
In-progress manuscripts or things freshly out:
"Platform Companies and Platform Workers: Price and Quantity Responses to Changing Cost" (Aug 2022) What is a platform company, and how are platform workers not employees? In a gig economy what are likely patterns of price pass-through if policies make platform workers more costly?

Soundbites on longer-term strategic work arcs:
(Big-picture history and economics: Ten minutes of "Why most people live here"
drawing on, among other things, what I did on World's Tightest Cluster, with a commercial sponsor!)
Who knew. (These extractions are from previous different publications of mine. The sequence of "each workstream in 1 picture" result from my attempts to cross-validate on an independent corpus what I'm machine-learning about the world's emotions, language, and tone in narratives on inequality and social mobility).
