This is a blog by Matthew Shaffer. I’m currently a doctoral student at Harvard Business School. I started this blog in a previous job as a way to force me to make time for my own ideas when I’m not at my day job, and to invite my far more intelligent friends to correct and improve me in the comments. The main justification for this blog was that I learn by writing.

The ideas contained here are preliminary and subject to revision, whenever new data or arguments change my mind — that’s what truth-seeking is about. The writing is unedited and unpolished. Alas, we all must make our little compromises with the world.

For the next few years of my doctoral program, it’s likely I’ll have little, if any, time for blogging, but I’m leaving this website up for curious Googlers.

  1. Hello, I’m an avid reader of your blog.
    I have a Bachelors Degree in Economics and I’m very much interested in pursuing my interest in Economics to the Masters level.
    I would like some insight on how the M.A in Economics compares to the M.Sc in.Economics, and if you’ll advice that I take up an offer of admission to study for the M.A.
    Thank you.
