In this week’s research, top choices include:

  1. Caroline Hoxby and George Bulman address the question of whether federal tax deductions for college tuition payments promote college attendance. In their words:

    Although many eligible households take nearly the maximum deduction allowed, we find no evidence that it affects attending college (at all), attending full- versus part-time, attending four- versus two-year college, the resources experienced in college, the amount paid for college, or student loans.

  2. Risk and energy price shocks correlate with global productivity slowdowns. I have an idea – let’s play Climate Casino.
  3. Ted Nordhaus does not believe we need to fear the machines, yet. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
  4. Are some holidays harmful to your health?
