Day of an Assistant Professor (51)

Work on the climate change project with my colleagues.

Attend a seminar talk by Peter Nilsson, who finds that those Swedes born to young women during a temporary policy-driven increase in alcohol availability back in 1967 drop out of school more likely and earn less today. His careful analysis rules out many competing hypotheses, suggesting that the exposure to alcohol in utero negatively affects the cognitive skill. Check out his paper if interested.

Continue working on the the climate change project with my colleagues until late in the evening.
