@KimDriver11 @BruceReutersL @tyillco @ch22_christ @darioperkinss @StAndrewsUniv of phd economists are clueless and note they mostly missed the Great Recession and some even argued in August 2008 that the state of macro was good as it was grounded in theory but hadn’t spotted global recession collapsing housing markets etc so I get it
@darioperkins @BruceReutersB @KimDriver11u @tyillct @ch22_chris @StAndrewsUnivKing always wanted non PHD economists so he could get all technical and lose them with utterly irrelevant drivel - Cunliffe Gieve Lomax BarkerLambert McCafferty - along with economists he could threaten and control in subsequent careers Greenspan did similarly I understand
Since the 1960s, PhD programs have gotten longer and longer, while the share of PhDs getting tenure has declined by 50 percent
econ twitter is generally good. But econ PhD twitter is its own wild world.
Haven’t followed the news much today, but seems like one side is mad that a staffer called Republicans a bunch of fuckers, and that a First Lady with a PhD calls herself doctor, and the other side is mad that the president is ignoring the pandemic and overturning the election
This is not a subtweet of anyone in particular and it's going to annoy some people since I have a lot of PhD followers/friends and also I'm a stubborn guy myself but...one thing I'm noticed is that once someone gets a PhD, it become 10x harder to convince them they're wrong.
Peter Daszak is a British-born American PhD who’s spent a career discovering dangerous viruses in wildlife, especially bats. In 2003, he warned 60 Minutes a pandemic was coming. Two weeks ago, NIH funding for his virology research was killed.
BernieBros attacking Dr. Biden for having a PHD in education is exactly what I’d expect. Y’all need to realize you’re part of the problem. @BernieSanders needs to separate himself from your “support”. You do more harm to him, his policies, and the country, than good.
