Refs Can’t Help It

More good stuff from Justin Wolfers, economics professor here at Penn. Wolfers, who last made sports headlines with a paper on point shaving in college basketball, has come back with a new paper on racial bias in refereeing decisions. The New York Times has an excellent review; not just a summary but an analysis of the paper, explanation of the technique, and even a peer review process.

    hmm cool, i saw the refereeing bias bit on Slate, but I had no idea the study was by Wolfers.

    and I had no idea that was you until after the exam started. :-p
