Friday Links: Living in a poor neighborhood can hurt your health; former student writes an open letter to Dr. Sachs, and IE jobs

Berk Ozler's picture
  • Washington Post reports (citing a new study in the NEJM) that a program in the 1990s that offered women in public housing a chance to live in better neighborhoods has caused lower rates of diabetes and extreme obesity.
  • A former student of Jeff Sachs writes an open letter to his former professor (you need to be logged in Facebook to read, but who isn't?). In addition, A View from the Cave summarizes the MVP debate.

It seems the open letter link is not working?

It was working when I posted, but seems to have gotten disabled since. I fixed it by linking directly to the letter, so it should be fine now. Thanks for letting us know. Berk.
