“More useful to science [than being subjectively original] — and more truly fulfilling if you can bring it off — is to try to stay informed on what other scientists have done and to advance the frontier by your own quantum jumps.” – Paul Samuelson
A Fine Theorem is a summary of recent economics research written by Kevin Bryan, an Assistant Professor of Strategy at the University of Toronto Rotman School of Management. I tend to read within my fields of interest – innovation, micro theory, and philosophy/methodology – though posts are not exclusive to those areas. The vast majority of posts here are on recent research, meaning working papers published within the last few months, or recent journal articles, although particularly interesting, undervalued work from the past will be featured. This site at heart is really just a way for me to keep track of articles I might need in my own research, nothing more.
I do my best to link to ungated copies of research, but this is not always possible. In many cases, (longer) prepublication versions of gated papers can be found by searching the title at Google Scholar.
