Considering its immense, life changing consequences, our choice of university education often seems ill-informed. I estimate how siblings influence and inspire each others in their choices, using a unique Swedish data set where identification comes from tie breaking lotteries. I also use this data set to study economic returns to fields of study and how education influences investment and savings decisions. To avoid data-mining pitfalls, the study was pre-registered.
I use machine learning to estimate a model that is more accurate than a prediction market at forecasting replication success of lab experiments. While statistical properties of the original paper such as its p-value explain most of the variation, certain experimental design features are also influential. The model could be used as a cheap tool to aid researchers in evaluating the necessity of running replications ex ante.
There is a vast literature in Psychology and Economics about how we learn selectively, searching for ways to confirm our priors and biases. Using economic theory and an experiment, I aim to study how this type of motivated reasoning affects network formation; who we choose to follow and be friends with.
