History of Boston Transportation
Fred Salvucci ponders the role of contingency in history, and in the evolution of Boston and its transportation system. He starts from the time the glaciers pulled back from Boston, leaving a soggy near-island and a river for the first white settlers to contend with. “The reason the city is here because
Reflections on an MIT Education

The Choice Between Voice and Exit: The Effect of Liquidity on Shareholder Commitment
Most stock market experts believe shareholder input is good because it presses managers to do their best to maximize returns. But how does liquidity -- the availability of shares to buy and sell -- affect that shareholder involvement? "It's something that has inspired both academic debate and policy debate," says Wharton finance professor Alex Edmans, who has co-authored a paper on how liquidity affects governance.Author(s):
5.3 The acceleration due to gravity In the absence of air resistance, an object falling freely under the influence of the Earth's gravity, close to the surface of the Earth, experiences an acceleration of about 9.81 m s−2 in the downward direction. The precise value of the magnitude is indicated by the symbol g and varies slightly from place to place due to variations in surface altitude, the effect of the Earth's rotation and variations in the internal composition of the Earth. Some typical values f

William Easterly (@bill_easterly) is Professor of Economics at New York University and Director of NYU’s Developme
