The Dubner Effect

Earlier this year, Tyler posted on the research of Emily Oster, a Harvard econ graduate student, who suggests new and compelling explanations for Asia’s missing women and why Aids rates are so high in Africa (here and here).  Today, Dubner and Levitt discuss Oster’s research on Asia’s missing women at greater length in Slate.  I’d like to say that Marginal Revolution had it all first but you should still read the Slate piece for the final twist.  Damn you Stephen Dubner!!!  (That last, to be shouted to the sky ala Jon Stewart.) 🙂
