This page includes all of my professional publications.
Here is my my personal blog.
I also wrote a guide to the issues for policymakers.


The digital divide, digital equity, and the nature of the problem - June 3, 2021 - The Benchmark - This post is the second in a series of four posts, which diagnoses the problem inherent in the digital divide. As policymakers consider measures to bridge this divide, it is essential to know that, unconnected individuals typically have low educational attainment, low income, are elderly or are disabled. Just as important, two-thirds of those not connected say that lack of interest is the primary reason for being offline.

Social Media and Misinformation - May 24, 2021 - Inside Sources - Some research suggests that misinformation boosts short-term engagement with platforms. But it is tough to compare platforms with and without misinformation in the wild. Moreover, users learn and change their preferences over time. With these concerns in mind, our economic lab set up an experimental game to test some key questions. The results undercut the notion that misinformation is good for the bottom line. Even our researchers were shocked. Much as Zuckerberg had suggested, social media platforms focused on user long-term engagement have a clear incentive to purge their platforms of misinformation.

Bill Nelson’s Flawed Vision for NASA - April 22, 2021 - National Review Online - Bill Nelson certainly comes with the right credentials to lead NASA. He has a long history overseeing the agency. He remains one of the few politicians ever to fly a Space Shuttle mission, and he has won glowing praise from all the right people, such as previous Administrator Bridenstine and Senator Rubio. But the biggest concern about Nelson is that he won’t push back against the worst excesses of Congress. For far too long, Congress has moved beyond mere goal-setting to dictate in legislative text what the agency should decide itself. We need a change.

An in-depth look at the broadband infrastructure bills - April 13, 2021 - The Benchmark - This post is the first in a series of four posts, which first explores the current infrastructure bills, diagnoses the problem inherent in the digital divide, explores broadband as an infrastructure problem, and finally lays out an algorithm for action in broadband.

Facebook’s “Dangerous Individuals and Organizations” Policy: A Comment to The Oversight Board- March 3, 2021 - The Benchmark - With the Facebook Oversight Board still in its infancy, the Board’s cases and its decisions could be seen by some as inconsequential. But contrary to this belief, the Board’s move to provide a decision on the Trump deplatforming case poses an existential risk of eliminating the Board’s “independence” and credibility.

Reinvigorating communities will take more than broadband - February 23, 2021 - The Benchmark - Contrary to popular belief, broadband expansions are not a cure all for sluggish economies.

How platforms broke antitrust analysis - February 19, 2021 - The Benchmark - Economists and antitrust scholars have been actively working on merging insights from the nascent platform literature into traditional antitrust analysis. This post offers a beginning point to that kind of assessment.

Water markets critical to managing scarcity - January 5, 2021 - The OCR - Many have decried the emergence of water markets because they are so repugnant. Water is a right, they claim. By claiming it is a right does not change the fact that it is still a scarce resource that has many different competing uses. Markets won’t solve droughts, but they do help farmers and cities to manage their repercussions.


Facebook’s “Dangerous Individuals and Organizations” Policy: A Comment to The Oversight Board - December 9, 2020 - Public Interest Comment - The comment focuses on four points that speak to broader processes at the Oversight Board as well as the particular issues within the particular case. First, the information provided to solicit public participation is insufficient to allow for meaningful discussion of the nuances surrounding the subject posts. Second, the “Dangerous Individuals and Organizations Policy” is too broad when applied to historical figures. Third, the Dangerous Individuals policy is inconsistently applied, rendering it ineffective and counterproductive. Fourth, retroactively applying the Dangerous Individuals policy to a “Memory” undermines Facebook’s credibility in content moderation.

Debunking the myths surrounding the COVID-19 vaccines - November 20, 2020 - The Benchmark - Cooperation among private and public sector actors, especially in times of crisis, is the key to solving critical problems.

What you should know about the Google antitrust case - November 4, 2020 - The Benchmark - An explanation of the DOJ’s motivation for bringing a case against Google, the gaps in it, and what’s next.

Are Government-Owned Broadband Networks Effective? - October 23, 2020 - The Center for Growth and Opportunity - In this research in focus piece, author Will Rinehart examines the existing research on the effectiveness of GONs in adding value to local communities. Rinehart begins by examining when it makes sense to build a new broadband network in the first place. He finds that the initial investments needed to establish a new broadband network can be sizable, especially in rural areas, and vary significantly depending on population density, local conditions, and regulatory requirements. Understanding exactly what kind of broadband service is in the highest demand is also essential to understanding a potential project’s feasibility.

The curious case of Romanian broadband - October 15, 2020 - The Benchmark - The success of Romanian broadband offers lessons for policymakers today.

Petition for Rulemaking regarding Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 - September 21, 2020 - The CGO - Section 230 laid the foundation for today’s modern Internet. Tech companies like Facebook, Google, and Twitter were able to scale, knowing that they won’t be second-guessed by courts if they were to take off spam or harassing content from their networks. Spam filters, parental blocking software, and every other service that curates Internet content would be fair game for lawsuits as well if Section 230 fundamentally changes.

Is data nonrivalrous? – September 14, 2020 – The Benchmark – For many firms, there is no scale effect with data. Many companies today aren’t even capable of incorporating insights from their own data, let alone another company. A more permissive data-sharing regime won’t do much to solve this endemic hurdle.

Tracing the impact of automation on workers and firms – August 14, 2020 – The Benchmark – Automation will be a slow process in many sectors. Instead, productivity data is uneven. Firms are reluctant to change, and only some industries seem to be affected by robotics or other automation methods.

Don’t Ban TikTok Before A Public Trial – August 12, 2020 – Op-ed in The Daily Caller – At a gut-level, the move by the White House feels satisfying. Finally, the president is doing something to curb Chinese overtures on the Internet. But the ban does little to push back on the actual rights violations by the Chinese government. Instead, the president should be more forceful in calling out China for surveilling and oppressing Uighurs, while also showing more support for protesters in Hong Kong that are crying out for democracy and freedom.

What can we expect at the tech antitrust hearing, an FAQ – July 29, 2020 – The Benchmark – The House antitrust hearing will vary dramatically in the key questions and policy remedies posed to each company. This FAQ helps cut through the noise.

Consumers value Facebook to the tune of $1 trillion a year – July 16, 2020 – The Benchmark – Using the economic concept of the shadow price, I estimate the value of social media to consumers, which totals just under a trillion each year.

A dangerous game – June 3, 2020 – The Benchmark – In an effort to punish Twitter for fact-checking him, President Trump signed an executive order that could mean more of his content around the Internet is taken down in the future. It may have scored political points, but it comes at the expense of a bright spot of the U.S. economy, which would be exposed to greater liability.

The Apple Google API is a supplement to manual tracing, not a substitute – May 21, 2020 – The Benchmark – The API has faced a spat of criticism. Some deride it as being ineffectual, while others have serious concerns about the system’s implications for privacy. Yet, the Exposure Notification API should be understood on its own terms. Digital contact systems are only a supplement to existing manual tracing efforts; they are not a substitute.

There Aren’t Luddites in a Quarantine – April 28, 2020 – Truth on the Market – This piece is part of a blog series by TOTM guests and authors on the law, economics, and policy of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Did an 8-year-old merger cause today’s ventilator shortage? – April 10, 2020 – The Benchmark – Given the facts, it is hard to claim this was a killer acquisition. The more likely story is that the federal government tried to low-ball a project, got a bite from Newport, and that project ultimately failed when Newport realized they were taking a loss on every single product.

Regulatory uncertainty made COVID responses difficult – April 6, 2020 – The Benchmark – While testing has expanded massively in recent weeks, the confusion throughout February caused a holdup, an expected outcome of regulatory uncertainty. The cumulative effect led to a further spreading of the disease that could have been prevented.

Changing antitrust rules will cause confusion – March 21, 2020 – The Hill – We should wait until the big tech investigations have run their course before changing the antitrust regime.

Welcome to the kill zone? – February 27, 2020 – The Benchmark – The vast majority of acquisitions aren’t to stop competitors, but to buy innovative ideas and talent, which has the end effect of being pro-consumer. Policymakers, as well as leadership at the FTC and the DOJ, are justified in taking a closer look at the impact of large firms on innovation. Still, the evidence of a kill zone in the tech industry is thin.

We should be tackling disinformation – February 6, 2020 – The Benchmark – The end result of Warren’s plan wouldn’t be a reduction of disinformation, but a reduction of all kinds of political speech, including her own.
