I am an environmental and labor economist at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA). I use theory and data to study how beliefs affect decisionmaking, the role of information—especially professional forecasts—in shaping beliefs, and the effect of forward-looking behavior on empirical analyses. I also have a research agenda trying to convince myself that leisure can improve my labor productivity (see here). Email: jgs2103@columbia.edu.

Ankit Bhutani has created new Python code to estimate two-sample two-stage least squares (TS2SLS). The code also works in R! Find it on Ankit’s github page. The new code provides more accurate standard error calculations than my Stata code.
