Emily Oster is a liar!

Emily Oster told me just yesterday that she didn’t start thinking about missing women until she was in graduate school.

Now it is revealed in the Everit St. Weekly (see page 3) that she actually began the research at age 9.

Knowing she spent more than 15 years working on the project, it is easier for me to understand how it turned out so great.
