A nice bit of ink for Assistant Professor of Economics Daniel Stone; his paper “Media and Gridlock,” published in the Journal of Public Economics, is referenced in the Boston Globe‘s “Ideas” section.

An excerpt:

“In a new paper, a professor of economics at Bowdoin uses game theory to model partisan legislative behavior and finds that the minority party has stronger incentives to obstruct—and be seen obstructing—when news reporting is less reliable in discerning good policy.”

Read it in the Boston Globe.
