How Capitalism Changed American Literature | Public Books
I built a model and determined whether it could distinguish between conglomerate and nonprofit novels.2 I trained the model to see novels in terms of diction and syntax. It tracks which words and parts of speech are used, and how often.

The number of undocumented immigrants in the United States: Estimates based on demographic modeling with data from 1990 to 2016
We apply standard demographic principles of inflows and outflows to estimate the number of undocumented immigrants in the United States, using the best available data, including some that have only recently become available. Our analysis covers the years 1990 to 2016. We develop an estimate of the number of undocumented immigrants based on parameter values that tend to underestimate undocumented immigrant inflows and overstate outflows; we also show the probability distribution for the number of undocumented immigrants based on simulating our model over parameter value ranges. Our conservative estimate is 16.7 million for 2016, nearly fifty percent higher than the most prominent current estimate of 11.3 million, which is based on survey data and thus different sources and methods. The mean estimate based on our simulation analysis is 22.1 million, essentially double the current widely accepted estimate.

Trends in mortality inequality in the US and France | VOX, CEPR Policy Portal
The pattern for the US, shown by the dashed blue lines, is very different. There is a strong positive gradient already at young ages and inequality in mortality is higher than in France over the entire life cycle. While this can be seen as bad news, the comparison of the dashed lines for 1990 and 2010 reveals strong improvement at younger ages.

Teens are abandoning Facebook in dramatic numbers, study finds | Technology | The Guardian

About half of Americans don’t think climate change will affect them — here’s why - The Verge
The poll, conducted by Gallup, shows that many Americans “perceive climate change as a distant problem,” says Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication. A lot of people think that we won’t bear the brunt of climate change until 2050 or 2100, and that other parts of the world will be affected, not the US, not their state, their city, or their community. “As a result, it becomes psychologically distant. It’s just one of thousands other issues that are out there.” If I have to worry about paying my hospital bills, I’m less concerned about melting sea ice in the Arctic.

Why Do Mass Shootings Happen? Here's The Best Explanation | National Review
"There are young men in the grip of a terrible contagion, and there is no cure coming." But why do these men (and they are almost always men) believe they are entitled to usurp the state's monopoly to the right to use violence in the name of justice and order? What makes lynching okay if it is solo or in small teams? Parents that shouldn't have had kids like them to raise, I suspect, but surely not that simple.

'Corporations Are People' Is Built on a 19th-Century Lie
A few years later, in an opinion in an unrelated case, Field wrote that “corporations are persons within the meaning” of the Fourteenth Amendment. “It was so held in Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad,” explained Field, who knew very well that the Court had done no such thing.

His gambit worked. In the following years, the case would be cited over and over by courts across the nation, including the Supreme Court, for deciding that corporations had rights under the Fourteenth Amendm...

Q&A: Professor Listokin Breaks Down the New Tax Bill - Yale Law School
Q: What aspect of the bill will you be examining the most over the next few years and why?

A: I am very interested in the interaction of law and macroeconomics. So I’ll be focusing on the macroeconomic implications of the changes. In particular, I’m concerned that the bill weakens the power of the income tax as an automatic stabilizer.
