Six Ways From Sundae — Beutler Ink
> Ever wondered just what goes into ice cream? We're not talking about what makes the pecans swirl and the roads rocky. We mean just the basic ingredients that comprise this favorite cold confection. Think it's cream, sugar, and eggs? Think again! Today's ice creams are a Neapolitan blend of old-time soda shop and newfangled laboratory.

Fake It Till You Make It: Reputation, Competition, and Yelp Review Fraud
Michael Luca and Georgios Zervas ABSTRACT Consumer reviews are now a part of everyday decision-making. Yet the credibility of reviews is fundamentally undermined when business-owners commit review fraud, either by leaving positive reviews for themselves or negative reviews for their competitors. In this paper, we investigate the extent and patterns of review fraud on the popular consumer review platform Because one cannot directly observe which reviews are fake, we focus on reviews that Yelp’s algorithmic indicator has identified as fraudulent. Using this proxy, we present four main findings. First, roughly 16 percent of restaurant reviews on Yelp are identified as fraudulent, and tend to be more extreme (favorable or unfavorable) than other reviews. Second, a restaurant is more likely to commit review fraud when its reputation is weak, i.e., when it has few re- views, or it has recently received bad reviews. Third, chain restaurants - which benefit less from Yelp - are also less likely to commit review fraud. Fourth, when restaurants face increased competition, they become more likely to leave unfavorable reviews for competitors. Taken in aggregate, these findings highlight the extent of review fraud and suggest that a business’s decision to commit review fraud respond to competition and reputation incentives rather than simply the restaurant’s ethics.
