Blog your job market paper, an SME conference, randomizing fear, and more...

Blog your job market paper? We would love to have readers who are on the job market (as well as those who aren’t but have exciting work to share) do a guest post on their work. If your paper is about impact evaluation, or has a strong measurement component, or otherwise fits with the themes of the blog, we’d love to consider it for a guest post. We propose the following process:

1.      Email your paper to

2.    We look through the papers to see which we think would make good posts for our blog, and contact you to ask for a guest post. You don’t get mad or interpret it as a negative signal about your paper if we don’t contact you- it will depend on how many papers we get sent and our tastes.

3.       You get to advertise your work to a broader audience, and we get a chance to stay current.

And now back to our regular programming – here’s this weeks links:

·        Innovations for Poverty Action’s SME initiative is having a conference at the IADB in Washington on November 30 – I’m presenting some work in progress from Sri Lanka, and there looks to be a number of exciting new studies – see here for details on getting an invite.

·        The latest critique of the Millennium Villages impact results on Africa Can

·         A new review of how to evaluate active labor market programs from the IADB.

·         Randomizing fear as a factor in stock trades

·        Impact evaluation of trade interventions – a new working paper.
