I agree that the CDC should be allowed to study #gunviolence but disagree strongly with this headline 1/n…

We don’t know much about whether education-based interventions can reduce recidivism (for those who already have a criminal record). However, there is a long literature on the effects of education on crime more broadly.

Punchline: education is a very effective way to prevent crime.

Caveat: gathering young people in one place (for school or anything else) can unintentionally increase criminal behavior.

It’s wonderful to see economists like @paulgp and @economistified offering to comment on JMP abstracts and intros. Econ JM candidates, take them up on this -- even if you think your writing is good. It can always be better. Better writing makes your ideas easier to appreciate.
A common misconception among grad students is that people will read your full paper, giving you 30ish pages of text to make your ideas clear and compelling.
Most people will only ever read your abstract. If you are very lucky they will also read your intro (though not always with full attention). You need to leave them with a clear understanding of your contribution in both places. This is hard. Other people can help.

My paper on Naloxone access and opioid abuse (joint work with @anita_mukherjee) is now online:

"The Moral Hazard of Lifesaving Innovations: Naloxone Access, Opioid Abuse, and Crime"…
Naloxone is a drug that can save someone’s life if administered during an opioid overdose. It therefore has potential as a harm-reduction strategy to fight the opioid epidemic.
Every state has passed laws expanding access to Naloxone; many places now have standing orders allowing anyone to purchase it without a prescription. For many, the goal is to get Naloxone into everyone’s medicine cabinet.
