Glaeser's New York Post Piece

Ed Glaeser has consistently written important economics papers on a variety of subjects but today he has done something even more impressive. He has published in the NY Post.  For, people not from New York City and people who only read the NY Times, permit me to explain.   The New York Post is what "real" New Yorkers read.  I realize that economists what to see a sketch of a proof of any conjecture --- so here it goes.  As economists make their paper titles more sexy, can you really do better than these?

Now, once Glaeser publishes an op-ed in the Metro, he'll have earned his tenure.
