Little late link love

So… one of us was up late last night reading Lord of Scoundrels, which, though in many ways not perfect, was definitely a page-turner (It’s a bit of a guilty pleasure book with lots of shout-outs to Heyer’s Alistair Saga– she even takes a couple details from Devil’s Cub), and just completely forgot there was a blog or link love or that she should mention to #2 she wasn’t going to make it to the computer.  So… let’s see what’s in the old chat log.

Even famous female economists get no respect.  Which we knew.  I have definitely heard people giving Betsy Stevenson, the author of this piece’s wife and an amazing economist herself, no respect because she’s published (top) papers with her husband.  It really is no fair how even now that wives who coauthor actually get their names on the papers (whereas in the past, it would only show up in the acknowledgements) they are still not counted as full coauthors.
