Here is an add-hoc collection of resources, notes and links, primarily for PhD students.

The 2020 and 2021 AAEA Panel on Non-Academic Development Economics Jobs.

A geospatial data repository. Let me know if there’s something cool you think should be added!

In this dropbox link, you will find: (a) a short slide show on how to write economics introductions, and how to diagram introductions in existing, post-2010 papers from top journals, in order to learn how to write these intros yourself, and (b) two examples of such diagramming (in the text alongside each intro paragraph), for Fernando 2022 and Hornbeck 2010. I encourage you to do this exercise yourself for ~5 papers!

Other resources on writing economics papers:

Manuela Angelucci on depression during a PhD.

Rachael Meager on how to get into a top econ PhD program when you are NOT coming from a top undergraduate program, and on how to give academic talks.

Random code/nerd stuff:

On economics journal ranking:

Useful links on running power calculations:

On publication bias:

On intergenerational mobility in the US (by now a bit outdated):
