There is a wealth of fascinating research being produced by microeconomic theorists. It is really hard for nonspecialists to understand it, though, as it tends to be presented in esoteric journal articles full of difficult math and jargon. Even applied economists and economic policy makers have a hard time absorbing the lessons of cutting-edge microeconomics research. I was glad to find out today, via a post by Al Roth, about this new website which has the mission of bridging this exact gap. It’s not easy; I should know, having tried for years to make difficult mathematical papers in microeconomics digestible to students. But it is a worthy endeavor.
