  • Is Facebook the greatest thing that’s ever happened, or is it destroying humanity? During the run-up to the 2018 midterms, Stanford economist Matthew Gentzkow conducted a comprehensive study to measure the true welfare effects of the digital platform. “There were a number of years where Facebook could do no wrong. Now we’ve had a couple of years where Facebook could do no right,” he says. “We need to start understanding the nuances of what this technology is actually doing to the world.”

    Watch him explain his findings in the undergraduate class Econ 5: "Frontiers in Economic Research and Policy," and read more about the study here: https://stanford.io/2MHBdP8

  • What happens when you quit Facebook? More time with friends and family. Less political knowledge — and less partisanship. A small boost in mood and life satisfaction. And, on average, an extra hour a day of downtime. That’s according to a new study, the most comprehensive to date, by Matthew Gentzkow, senior fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR).

    Just a year before he was assassinated, Martin Luther King Jr. visited Stanford to talk about "the other America" — the poor who "find themselves perishing on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity": https://stanford.io/2MsonEB

  • If you tell people they have a genetic variant that makes them prone to overeating, or to low athletic endurance, their bodies start to respond accordingly, Alia Crum found. (And the effect of being given the information, even when it's false, is stronger than the effect of actually having the predisposition.)

  • Do women really spend 90 percent of their income on their children? Kathryn Moeller, visiting assistant professor at the Stanford Graduate School of Education, came across the figure over and over throughout the years, but when she investigated its origin, her research "revealed nothing but a peculiar set of inter-institutional citation practices."

    “Even when quantitative data are valid,” she writes, “they often produce very limited understandings of the complex realities of girls and women’s lives and the conditions that produce poverty and inequality. These simply cannot be captured by a trial or a survey alone.”
