Warning to all willing to try their luck. I started small yesterday and kept loosing. Wanting to win the money back I started putting more in. The result: I lost it all and feel fucking terrible.
To anyone even thinking about gambling BTC: don't do it. It will not workout and you will always end up making a loss.
I know nobody will probably help me get back on my feet, but any help is greatly appreciated: 145hpNQsBLTTrDG8pEZkVYd5p9pkMcJ1x2

List of moderately difficult skribbl words for your new friend group (1200+ words)

That is to say that this list contains words that this list contains words that:
  1. Usually aren't instantly guess-able (like star, apple, or Nike).
  2. Can be played with a group of acquaintances (I play with a group of interns at work to blow off time)
Created this list by modifying an existing difficult word list we found online and adding a bunch of new words. If you see a stupid difficult word, it was probably a word from the existing difficult word list that I forgot to remove. (amicable and reimbursement were the type of bs I removed lol).

The /r/XboxOne Game Of The Year Awards 2017 - RESULTS!

Seasons greetings /XboxOne!
Thankyou once again for an amazing turnout of voters this year! We had a total of 10,103 responses - And upon removing the 6,822 naughty votes from people who thought they could bot the system (tisk tisk) we arrived at the grand total of 3,281 respondents!

A big thanks to all of you who took the time to fill out the survey.

On with the show!! As always - The votes have been counted correctly, altered based on my own personal bias and edited to reflect the juicy bribes I received in bitcoin and anime hug pillows from publishers.
Each winner has been given a prestigious and totally not imaginary /XboxOne exclusive "award", and are celebrated below.
As a heads up - By their very nature, these awards will contain mild spoilers. You have been warned

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

Blasting Nazis, robot dogs and the KKK with death lasers in a fictional alternate reality 1960s America? Whats not to love here?! The man who starred in the very first FPS game as we know them; B.J Blazkowicz returns and sets the record straight on just how the shooter genre is done.

Assassins Creed: Origins

Something of a surprise winner this year - The AC series is not known for its RPG flair, but Ubisoft went back to the drawing board with the newest instalment of the franchise and re-imagined AC as a sprawling, open world RPG set in ancient Egypt. Well done Ubisoft. Despite very strong competition from South Park: The Fractured, But Whole, you managed to take the win! Just don't get comfortable in your seats - I have a feeling we will see you back on the award stage very soon...

Assassins Creed: Origins

And by very soon - I mean right now... Never before have we awarded the Action Adventure AND Role Playing Game trophies to the same game - But then again, never before has a game managed to fuse open-world action, platforming and adventure quite so well into a deep RPG system. Truly a new benchmark for the open world genre, AC:O smashed its second-place rival, Shadow of War by over a thousand votes and adds another feather in its hat.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colussus

4 awards given out and only 2 games mentioned. Despite very healthy competition in this award from many games, Wolfenstein 2 managed to narrowly outpace its nearest rival, Prey and take the win. Violent, ridiculous and funny - But also poignant, emotional and surprisingly human. Wolfenstein 2 takes one of the most ridiculous storeys ever told in gaming and makes it feel real.

Fortnite: Battle Royale

This was not even a question in the minds of you guys. Epic's somewhat ahem familiar take on the battle royale genre utterly decimated the competition this year. Just goes to show that when your original game idea is tanking, there are much worse things you can do than rebuild your game into cartoony PUBG meets Minecraft. Nice one Epic.

Assassins Creed: Origins

This was a close one! Going head to head with Wolfenstein 2 yet again, the sandy expanses of the assassins creed world were just enough to push it into the winning position, by less than 30 votes!
The trials and tribulations of Bayek of Siwa were enough to win award number 3 for Ubisoft this year.

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds

Get ready to drop. Not surprisingly, PUBG wins best multiplayer this year. The Xbox is known as the "shooters console" and PUBG is currently the most popular shooter in the entire world - With a staggering 10%+ of all PC gamers on steam having played it (Making it the 6th most popular PC game in the world). It only makes sense that Xbox gamers would catch PUBG mania as well. Congratulations Bluehole!


Oh hey, it's that genre that FIFA wins every year! Football is the worlds most popular sport, so it would only make sense that it would be the most popular sports video game as well. In fact, the only gaming franchise that sells more on console than FIFA is COD.
Well done EA. Next year we will ship your award early to save time.

Forza Motorsport 7

Oh hey, it's that genre that Forza wins every year! Seriously though, Forza is the undisputed king of racing games. No other racing game series on any other platform comes close to the quality and frequency of releases that the Forza team manage every year. This year was no exception, with FM7 being used as the poster boy for the Xbox One X 4K, 60FPS HDR miracle. Turn 10 utterly obliterated the competition this year by over THREE THOUSAND votes. Possibly the widest margin of victory we have ever seen. Rekt.


Let's be real for a second - As a pure platformer, Cuphead is average at best. But in its own genre of "Artistic tour de force bullet hell cross boss rush cross platformer cross dark souls with incredible music" - It has no equal. The blue hedgehog made a come back this year with the incredible Sonic Mania, which did VERY well in votes, but it wasn't even close to knocking the crown off of the cup's head. Well done Studio MDHR.

Resident Evil 7

Resident Evil is the king of the survival horror genre. After years and years of poorly performing sequels, the team went back to the drawing board and re-designed just what it is that makes a Resident Evil game. Despite changing everything from the setting, to the story, to even the player perspective - RE7 Still somehow managed to feel like Resident Evil. On top of that, it was one of the best horror games released this year. Prey and The Evil Within 2 managed to actually tie for second place, but they must both bow before the king. A true return to form from Capcom.


Possibly by virtue of being one of the most original soundtracks in gaming, Cuphead stunned everyone with its old-timey Big Band and Barbershop soundtrack. Noticeable competition came from Prey, which was composed by Mick Gordon (Who won last year's best soundtrack award for DOOM) and Destiny 2 - But they weren't enough to overcome the originality and awesomeness that was Cuphead's soundtrack.
Also worth noting that this song is actually sung by a woman. The incredibly talented Alana Bridgewater.

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds

Award number two for the innovative new franchise. Despite its technical and performance issues on release, the game is still fun enough for the VAST majority of you to overlook. They earned this particular chicken dinner by over 2 thousand votes. Tasty.

Star Wars Battlefront 2

Despite the controversy surrounding the Battlefront series - There is one thing that nobody of sound mind can ever fault the series, and indeed DICE studios themselves for. Sound Design. The pew pew of the blasters, the whroom of the light sabres and the skreeeeeuummmmm of tie fighters all coming through JUST right.
Oh, and who could forget the almighty thermal impolder...

Assassins Creed: Origins

This game is simply stunning. In 4K HDR on the Xbox One X - There is arguably no better-looking game in existence right now. Incredible texture detail, stunning vistas, built up cities, sweeping sand dunes, a draw distance that stretches to infinity and historical accuracy so legit that you can play the game with an Egyptology book on hand and actually compare visual notes and translate the real hieroglyphics. AC:O is one hell of a pretty game. Battlefront 2 put up a good fight, but it was no match for that Ubisoft magic.

Mass Effect: Andromeda

Mass Effect: Andromeda was, in what is retrospectively the height of irony, delayed more than once by EA who claimed "We’re willing to make moves in launch dates if we feel that it’s necessary to deliver the right player experience" after their first 5-month delay. It seems that wasn't quite enough.
Bad characters, Bad Plot, Bad Glitches - The ME Series hit an all-time low with this instalment. Causing such a stir as to have EA gut the entire development team and then to declare that the Mass Effect franchise is to be shelved indefinitely.

Ryse: Son of Rome

We live in a post Pool Nation FX world. Gaming has peaked. Since then we shamble about aimlessly, lost and alone. We make do with what we are given. Ryse: Son of Rome was a launch game for the Xbox One, that Meme'd on this subreddit only second to PNFX. With weekly threads asking for it to be a GWG, Numerous rumours and hoaxes - The madmen finally did it and gave it to us.
So that's it. We defeated Microsoft and have no games left to meme... Soldiers without a war. Is there truly a place left for us in this world?
Oh, and the game is alright I guess.

The "Retry" button - Cuphead

Easily one of the most smashed menu options in recent memory. This filthy harlot was always there, ready for you to fail. You hated yourself for going back to its arms - But it was always there when you needed it. In the back of your mind, you knew this was an abusive relationship, but nobody truly knows you like the Retry button. Every time you press it, you swear to yourself that was the last time. That is until the next time...
Also as always, my mother was a strong contender in the "Other" category, as well as MajorNelson and the Puddle Slime from Slime Rancher.
PS - My... uhh... friend says thanks for those fursona pictures.

EA - Everything

Electronic Arts have been voted worst company in America. Twice.
Our very own mod falconbox summed up everyone's reaction to EA this year with some High-Quality Gifs meme magic.

Destiny 2

This was a polarising choice. Seemingly Bungie managed to accomplish the impossible by irritating both the hardcore Destiny 1 fanbase AND the casual audience with a cavalcade of "downgrades", controversies and poor press. From being caught stripping down content to be re-sold as microtransactions through to skimming EXP from players - Destiny 2 has not been a smooth ride. Not even Starwars Battlefront 2 came close to the level of regret felt by long-time Bungie fans.... Again...


What is left for me to say here? Cuphead is one of the most original, well executed and highly decorated games of the year. A stunning achievement for indie developers Studio MDHR - They even got props from the prime minister of Canada himself! Congratulations again guys. You crafted a fun and unique game that took the old school and somehow made it new school. A game that no Xbox One owner should be without, Cuphead is a triumph in every sense of the word.

Assassins Creed: Origins

Another Close one! With Cuphead and Wolfenstein 2 hot on its heels, it was once again Assassins Creed: Origins that managed to edge ahead of the crowd by a MEASLY 82 votes to pick up its 6th award this year - Making it the most highly decorated game in /XboxOne history.
Here is what the results looked like:
There seems to be no question at all on your minds as to what the essential game of 2017 is for every Xbox One owner. That game is Assassins Creed: Origins.
Ubisoft took a year off in order to make the best new AC game they could and it is obvious that that little extra layer of TLC was exactly what the series needed. If you are a fan of action games, platformers, stealth, hack and slash combat, open world exploration, RPG mechanics, loot, crafting or even just a history buff - You owe it to yourself to play this game. Particularly in 4K HDR on the Xbox One X. Congratulations Ubisoft on your first ever big win on the sub!
A big thanks to everyone who voted once again! Looking forward to 2018's wild ride! Love - The mod team.

Cointiply has a range of different ways that you can earn money on their site, which you can later withdraw as Bitcoin.
When you first login to the site you are presented with the coin faucet, a simple feature which lets you claim a very small amount of free 'coins' every hour. Beyond that there are many other ways that you can earn on the site which you will find listed below along with my thoughts or experiences of using them.
Unlike most other cryptocurrency faucets and 'micro-task' websites, Cointiply initially pays you in their own coins, which are pegged to fiat (the United States dollar specifically). But when you come to make a withdrawal you will be paid out in bitcoin or doge (your choice).
The basic faucet payout is obviously very small as they all are, but compares very well to other faucets. You start off getting just over half a cent each time, which goes up to double that if you are a regular user and get the daily bonus. Making a claim rolls for a random number, and if you get a prime number you also get an extra bonus.
Other ways to earn include:
Watching videos: They actually have some good video channels that can be good to watch. If you watch three of the ads that display between videos on the channels they offer you a reward.
Ads don't show after every video, but if doesn't take too long to get to three. This can be a good one to just put on and leave to play while you do something else.
After three ads have played you don't get any more, so its probably best to leave it on while you are in the room and keep an eye so you can close one channel and open another each time you reach three ads to get a reward.
Playing games: They have quite a lot of games to play as well, and some are quite fun. You get a payment each time you play a game, which won't add up to anything significant tbh.
I wouldn't recommend doing this as your sole method of earning crypto, but if you’re bored and you are the kind of person who sometimes plays random free casual games then you might as well come here and get a little something back for your time.
Paid to click adverts: On average you get something like a tenth of a cent for viewing an ad for a few seconds. Hardly any money, but hardly any time either.
Tasks and offers: Earning larger amounts requires going to the offer wall and completing surveys, downloading and testing apps, completing special offers from various companies and other easy small tasks.
The earnings are good but there may not always be something which appeals to you.
I like to check in regularly to browse the offers but to be a little bit picky about which ones to do, which is OK if you at least take a few seconds to do the faucet and PTC ads each time so that it is never a completely wasted visit.
CPU mining: This is the only one I wouldn't recommend as you earn almost nothing and use electricity which costs a lot more than you earn.
Referrals: You can also add to your earnings by sharing your link and introducng other people to the site.
Multiplier: Gamblers can also play a dice game in the hopes of increasing their balance.
Interest: If you keep coins in your account past the minimum payment threshold then you can earn 5% per year on your balance. This is quite generous compared to similar sites.
The mimimum payment threshold is around $3.50. This is relatively high, compared to other faucets, but it isn't so high that you will struggle to ever reach it.
Overall it’s a good site and if you are looking for a casual way to earn a small amount of crypto without having to spend much time on it and perhaps having a little fun and entertainment along the way then I would recommend using Cointiply.

Having played on Stake for a year now I'd like to share what I think about it. The site is made by the same people who made PrimeDice so the general design is similar but Stake has 12 games including a dice game. All the games are provably fair so you can verify your bets to be sure it's not rigged and the house edge averages 1%. My favorite games are plinko, video poker, and keno. They also have a great community and forum. You can chat with other players and even receive free rains of crypto in chat every few minutes. The site supports Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Doge. There is not minimum bet so you can choose any amount you want. Withdrawals are instant and I've never had an issue with it. If you do have any issues, they have an awesome support staff available 24/7. If you bet a lot be sure to ask them about rakeback and you can get a percentage of your total wagered amounts.

So overall this is my favorite crypto casino because of the games, community and overall trustworthiness. Here's my link if you want to check it out.

3 years ago I misclicked a bet on PrimeDice and lost 2.3 BTC in one click. Today that's the equivalent of $16,865 :(

When I first heard about bitcoin in 2011 I was super excited about it but was unsure about how to get it. I had a friend who built computers and he was an early miner.
Fast forward to 2013. I made a bitcoin wallet on Coinbase and bought 3 BTC for $300 each. I was soon telling everyone about BTC and how it was the future of money!
Here's where it gets bad. I was browsing a bitcoin forum and saw an ad for PrimeDice. I've always had an addictive personality when it comes to gambling. You probably know where this is going. I set up an account and moved a small fraction of a BTC over to my PrimeDice account. I make a few small bets and win! Hey this 'provably fair" gambling site seems legit and I just won .1 BTC! This is awesome, I thought. Fast forward an hour and I'm down about .7 BTC. In an effort to make my lost money back I transferred over my remaining bitcoins and proceeded to make smaller, better odds bets. Painstakingly, I won almost my full amount back and I was back up to about 2.9 BTC.
Here's where I royally fucked up. Under the bet amount button there was another button that maxed your bet to your full amount in your account. Not thinking I hastily clicked this button instead of my usual .1 bet amount and click roll.
Suddenly my heart sank. The metallic taste of iron enveloped my palate. What had i just done? I lost 2.3 bitcoin in one roll. At the time that amounted to $690. A huge amount of money for someone making minimum wage.
I vowed not to buy more bitcoin fearing I might find myself gambling it again in an attempt to make my lost coins back. That 2.3 bitcoins today? Worth over $16,865.
I've matured a lot over these past 3 years. I no longer gamble at all and today I bought $1000 worth of BTC. It's just a small fraction of one coin but I feel great just being a bitcoin owner again after years of regretting my mistake.
I know I have no one to blame but myself and this isn't a sob-story. I just wanted to let this community know that my past mistakes haven't kept me from proudly being a part of the future of currency as we know it.
TLDR; Gambled away 3 BTC (worth $22k today) in under an hour. Three years later proudly bought $1000 worth of BTC. Learned from my mistakes.

Acquiring BTC for the first time - my experience

A few days ago, I decided to experiment a little and acquire some Bitcoin - primarily to hold, but also to use occasionally. What I found when trying to make that conversion was disappointing, at best. It seemed that at every turn, there were arbitrary hurdles placed in the way of trying to convert plain old US dollars into Bitcoin. Here's what I found:
*Coinbase wouldn't take my credit card - apparently prepaid debit cards aren't acceptable there. (I have other cards, but wasn't willing to use them for this, nor was I willing to do a bank draft and risk getting my personal bank account frozen in the process)
*CEX and Coinmama are presently unable to do business with residents of my US state (Georgia)
*Abra just sent out a press release saying that they can now accept Amex cards, but I found when I downloaded the app that was not actually the case yet. (The press release used the present tense, which is somewhat misleading in my opinion.)
*I even went down the road of trying to use a couple of Bitcoin ATMs, despite the pants-crappingly high fees they charge - one from Bitcoin Depot (in a crappy gas station in a REALLY sketchy area), and one from EasyBit. No dice there - at the Bitcoin Depot ATM I struggled to use the horribly miscalibrated touchscreen, and finally threw in the towel when it wouldn't scan the QR code on my mobile wallet app (Abra) The EasyBit ATM was just flat out out of commission.
For now, I'm going to call my curiosity largely satisfied - Bitcoin as a currency is conceptual at best right now. While Bitcoin is certainly interesting on paper, my experience over the last few days leads me to conclude that it is just not ready for prime time in terms of the infrastructure required to actually use it as an actual currency. I'll give this another shot a few years, if only to see if the infrastructure deficiencies I encountered get any better in the meanwhile.

I've got the money ($20,000) and I've got the skill (software dev) but I *don't* have the idea..

I have money, I have skill, and I even have a little bit of time. I am seriously motivated by bitcoin, and think it's absolutely the next big thing. But I don't know how best I can contribute to the bitcoin ecosystem (as well as hopefully benefiting myself in the process :)
I have funds that I can put in, if need be. I've already got skin in the game and own a fair few BTC myself, but want to do more than just throw $ into BTC and hope that it'll appreciate in value - that's boring.
And I've got a fair few years of software dev under my belt, so creating almost anything online doesn't really scare me, though I'd favor time-to-market as my prime goal.
So what should I build? It seems like there are a load of SatoshiDice clones already, so I'm not sure what innovation I could bring there. And there are innumerable BTC exchanges already, so building another doesn't seem that attractive. There's BitMit, some electronics vendors, wireless airtime topups - even (today) some porn - so niches are being filled already.
So my question is: What does the BTC economy need right now that doesn't already exist (or exist in a good form), that could be built fairly quickly, with a small to medium amount of investment?
EDIT: loving the ideas so far, thank you. I'll put your name in the footer if I build any of 'em ;)

What can I do? Huge gambling issue.

So, I am 21, turning 22 soon. I am currently a student at University, doing well, and have 2 years left. My parents do not know I gamble, neither do any close family. I am a compulsive gambler who chases losses...etc, it just happens, I can't help it. I once turned £200 to £15,000 in a casino in real life playing Roulette in one session. I had just won a spin with £100 on a 36, winning £3600, hitting my £15K mark. 10 minutes after that, I had already lost £5000 and had £10K, which I walked away with (so I was still £9600 up). I felt so uneasy and felt like i had to make that £5000 back, even though I was up, I was not satisfied. The next day I deposited the £8K in my bank, leaving £2K cash in my room. I felt good after some sleep. As soon as I got home I progressively lost £2000 online (cashed in £100, lost then £200 etc). Later that day I went to the casino, withdrew £1000, lost it. Withdrew £1000 more, lost it. Went home, took the £2000 cash I had at home, went to another casino as I was too embarrassed to head back to the same one, lost that £2000, withdrew what I had left and I lost that...I felt useless like utter shit. Just 2 days later, my parents send me £200 for some money for uni (they send £ regularly). I stupidly withdrew the £200 like the idiot I am and took it to the casino. I astounded myself and turned that £200 into £1080..once again. I was stunned and happy, in such a short period of time I made such an astounding about which I could only dream about. I decided to gamble with £80 more, £40 on slots £40 on roulette and leave with £1000 exact. I lost the £40 on roulette and decided to put the last £40 on slots. I was doing £4 spins and I fucking hit the jackpot. £7784. I was in shock, I had just turned £200 into £9K again, within a 2 day period. I went home, and I knew I couldn't trust myself with the money, I started looking up how I can put it away without touching it, started looking into bonds, ISAs etc. I couldn't really find anything and decided to try and be a mature adult and control myself. I couldn't do it. I lost everything within 3 days.
My worst ever loss was on a bitcoin gambling website called prime dice. I had deposited 2 BTC onto the site (BTC was around $500 at the time), and turned it into 35 fucking BTC. In todays money, had I kept that 35 BTC it would have been worth $105,000 USD. I cashed out, cashed in again later that night and lost everything. I can't help it. I feel that even if I have £10 Million, I would still go gambling trying to make an unlimited amount of money for reasons I do not know. I am lucky enough to come from a decent background, my parents do support me although I don't want them to, I do make money myself but end up gambling it away.
What do you guys suggest? All in all I've made and lost atleast $300-400K gambling. I need ways to help control the gambling, to budget. I feel like I want to still gamble a little bit, but have that strength to be like okay if I lose this i am done, and just be done and not gamble more until I make more, although I know this is probably just another excuse to carry on gambling. I think I gamble because of the rush it gives me and because I enjoy it, with no real monetary goal, although it feels good to win.

Only 20 but lost over 10k already - Thinking about suicide

It all started when I joined Prime-dice for the first time. I have won a big amount and it's all history.
For the past year I have lost around 4 bitcoins.
I fucking hate myself and want to kill myself.
Please help me, please I beg you before I do something...

Confession on how I got away with $1500 in Bitcoins for free

So first of all, yes, I'm using a throw-away account and Tor (Apparently you have to use in order to login through Tor. The regular let me register but wouldn't let me login. Just FYI for anyone having the same problem.) Call me a coward if you like.
Anyway, this happened a few months back. I was trying the wallet encryption feature for the first time on Bitcoin-QT. I got it setup but wanted to verify I could send and receive coins (and also that it would prompt for a password each time.) To do so, I figured I'd have a little fun and try out PrimeDice. I'm not much of a gambler (I never bet more than $20 at a time and I usually end up losing) and this was really only a test so I sent, I don't remember, about $1 or $2 worth of bitcoins over. Bitcoin-QT prompted me for my password as it should have. I rolled the dice a couple times and actually came out ahead by a small amount (won 50 cents or something.)
Then I hit cashout. Transaction comes in OK for the correct amount but then, what's this? Another transaction? Then another? And another? And another? I'm thinking oh great I must have glitched my wallet. But then they start confirming. At that point I realized I just hit the Bitcoin equivalent of winning the jackpot. Somehow PrimeDice messed up bad and sent my small transaction to me over 100 times (actually math tells me it would have been over 700 times, I don't remember.) And it wasn't just a double spend. Every. Single. Transaction. was valid and confirmed through the blockchain. It was popping up "received new bitcoins" on my screen about every 10-30 seconds for hours. I had already stayed up far too late watching the transactions come in and had to work very early in the morning so I forced myself to go to sleep after I had received about $500 worth, knowing the money was still flowing in. Woke up to the full amount and just though "Holy Shit. What are the chances? This is almost a month's worth of income for me for free."
Anyway, I ended up cashing it all out to fiat so I have none of those bitcoins left. I have this mistake to thank for my new monitor and GPU I'm using to type this. I'm not proud of my actions but I'm curious: If you were in my situation, what would you do? It would be like if you went to the ATM (that you somehow knew not to have a security camera and with no one else standing around) to take out $20 and it just glitched and kept spitting out money. Then you look at your bank statement and you only get charged for the $20. Me personally, I would have no hesitation at all stealing from someone like Bank of America. I feel a bit worse about taking coins from a smaller player like PrimeDice. If it was an individual person, I probably would have given the money back.
Does that make it right? No, but $1500 doesn't make all that much difference to them but it's a hell of a lot of money for me making only marginally better than minimum wage. Also, since it's a gambling service, I just took at as a large win. Happens all the time, right? And what business do they have using semi-anonymous currency with no method of collecting refunds if they can't design their systems properly? I just gave them a hard lesson (but not too hard, I doubt $1,500 would really hurt them, just give them a wake up call to fix it before it becomes $15,000. I also waited a couple months to post this so they had time to fix it. I see they've re-designed their site now and this happened prior to the re-design so good chance the bug is patched now.)
These justifications are paper-thin, I know. Just giving you an idea of my mindset at the time. So, go ahead, flame me, down-vote me, call me a thief if you like but put yourself in my shoes and ask yourself what you would honestly do. Some of you would give it back, I'm sure. But most? I don't know.

Feel free to discuss any of these papers in the comments section below. Please refrain from reposting any of these papers to this sub.
Learning, Confidence, and Business Cycles Cosmin L. Ilut Hikaru Saijo
We build a tractable heterogeneous-firm business cycle model where firms face Knightian uncertainty about their profitability and learn it through production. The cross-sectional mean of firm-level uncertainty is high in recessions because firms invest and hire less. The higher uncertainty reduces agents' confidence and further discourages economic activity. We characterize this feedback mechanism in linear, workhorse macroeconomic models and find that it endogenously generates empirically desirable cross-equation restrictions such as: amplified and hump-shaped dynamics, co-movement driven by demand shocks and countercyclical correlated wedges in the equilibrium conditions for labor, risk-free and risky assets. In a rich model estimated on US macroeconomic and financial data, the information friction changes inference and significantly reduces the empirical need for standard real and nominal rigidities. Furthermore, endogenous idiosyncratic uncertainty propagates shocks to financial conditions, disciplined by observed spreads, as key drivers of fluctuations, and magnifies the aggregate activity's response to monetary and fiscal policies.
Estimating market power Evidence from the US Brewing Industry Jan De Loecker Paul T. Scott
While inferring markups from demand data is common practice, estimation relies on difficult-to-test assumptions, including a specific model of how firms compete. Alternatively, markups can be inferred from production data, again relying on a set of difficult-to-test assumptions, but a wholly different set, including the assumption that firms minimize costs using a variable input. Relying on data from the US brewing industry, we directly compare markup estimates from the two approaches. After implementing each approach for a broad set of assumptions and specifications, we find that both approaches provide similar and plausible markup estimates in most cases. The results illustrate how using the two strategies together can allow researchers to evaluate structural models and identify problematic assumptions.
Energy Efficiency Standards Are More Regressive Than Energy Taxes: Theory and Evidence Arik Levinson
Economists promote energy taxes as cost-effective. But policymakers raise concerns about their regressivity, or disproportional burden on poorer families, preferring to set energy efficiency standards instead. I first show that in theory, regulations targeting energy efficiency are more regressive than energy taxes, not less. I then provide an example in the context of automotive fuel consumption in the United States: taxing gas would be less regressive than regulating the fuel economy of cars if the two policies are compared on a revenue-equivalent basis.
Agricultural Fires and Infant Health Marcos A. Rangel Tom Vogl
Fire has long served as a tool in agriculture, but this practice's human capital consequences have proved difficult to study. Drawing on data from satellites, air monitors, and vital records, we study how smoke from sugarcane harvest fires affects infant health in the Brazilian state that produces one-fifth of the world's sugarcane. Because fires track economic activity, we exploit wind for identification, finding that late-pregnancy exposure to upwind fires decreases birth weight, gestational length, and in utero survival, but not early neonatal survival. Other fires positively predict health, highlighting the importance of disentangling pollution from economic activities that drive it.
A Behavioral New Keynesian Model Xavier Gabaix
This paper presents a framework for analyzing how bounded rationality affects monetary and fiscal policy. The model is a tractable and parsimonious enrichment of the widely-used New Keynesian model – with one main new parameter, which quantifies how poorly agents understand future policy and its impact. That myopia parameter, in turn, affects the power of monetary and fiscal policy in a microfounded general equilibrium.
How Destructive is Innovation? Daniel Garcia-Macia Chang-Tai Hsieh Peter J. Klenow
Entrants and incumbents can create new products and displace the products of competitors. Incumbents can also improve their existing products. How much of aggregate productivity growth occurs through each of these channels? Using data from the U.S. Longitudinal Business Database on all non-farm private businesses from 1976–1986 and 2003–2013, we arrive at three main conclusions: First, most growth appears to come from incumbents. We infer this from the modest employment share of entering firms (defined as those less than 5 years old). Second, most growth seems to occur through improvements of existing varieties rather than creation of brand new varieties. Third, own-product improvements by incumbents appear to be more important than creative destruction. We infer this because the distribution of job creation and destruction has thinner tails than implied by a model with a dominant role for creative destruction.
Some Simple Economics of the Blockchain Christian Catalini Joshua S. Gans
We rely on economic theory to discuss how blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies will influence the rate and direction of innovation. We identify two key costs that are affected by distributed ledger technology: 1) the cost of verification; and 2) the cost of networking. Markets facilitate the voluntary exchange of goods and services between buyers and sellers. For an exchange to be executed, key attributes of a transaction need to be verified by the parties involved at multiple points in time. Blockchain technology, by allowing market participants to perform costless verification, lowers the costs of auditing transaction information, and allows new marketplaces to emerge. Furthermore, when a distributed ledger is combined with a native cryptographic token (as in Bitcoin), marketplaces can be bootstrapped without the need of traditional trusted intermediaries, lowering the cost of networking. This challenges existing revenue models and incumbents's market power, and opens opportunities for novel approaches to regulation, auctions and the provision of public goods, software, identity and reputation systems.
Interfirm Relationships and Business Performance Jing Cai Adam Szeidl
We organized business associations for the owner-managers of randomly selected young Chinese firms to study the effect of business networks on firm performance. We randomized 2,800 firms into small groups whose managers held monthly meetings for one year, and into a “no- meetings” control group. We find that: (1) The meetings increased firm revenue by 8.1 percent, and also significantly increased profit, factors, inputs, the number of partners, borrowing, and a management score; (2) These effects persisted one year after the conclusion of the meetings; and (3) Firms randomized to have better peers exhibited higher growth. We exploit additional interventions to document concrete channels. (4) Managers shared exogenous business-relevant information, particularly when they were not competitors, showing that the meetings facilitated learning from peers. (5) Managers created more business partnerships in the regular than in other one-time meetings, showing that the meetings improved supplier-client matching. (6) Firms whose managers discussed management, partners, or finance improved more in the associated domain, suggesting that the content of conversations shaped the nature of gains.
Targeting Policies: Multiple Testing and Distributional Treatment Effects Steven F. Lehrer R. Vincent Pohl Kyungchul Song
Economic theory often predicts that treatment responses may depend on individuals’ characteristics and location on the outcome distribution. Policymakers need to account for such treatment effect heterogeneity in order to efficiently allocate resources to subgroups that can successfully be targeted by a policy. However, when interpreting treatment effects across subgroups and the outcome distribution, inference has to be adjusted for multiple hypothesis testing to avoid an overestimation of positive treatment effects. We propose six new tests for treatment effect heterogeneity that make corrections for the family-wise error rate and that identify subgroups and ranges of the outcome distribution exhibiting economically and statistically significant treatment effects. We apply these tests to individual responses to welfare reform and show that welfare recipients benefit from the reform in a smaller range of the earnings distribution than previously estimated. Our results shed new light on effectiveness of welfare reform and demonstrate the importance of correcting for multiple testing.
Leveling the Playing Field: How Campaign Advertising Can Help Non-Dominant Parties Horacio A. Larreguy John Marshall James M. Snyder, Jr.
Voters are often uncertain about and biased against non-dominant political parties. By reducing the information gap with dominant parties, political advertising may thus disproportionately benefit non-dominant parties electorally. We test this argument in Mexico, where three main parties dominate many localities. To identify the effects of exposure to partisan advertising, we exploit differences across neighboring precincts in campaign ad distributions arising from cross-state media coverage spillovers induced by a 2007 reform that equalized access to ad slots across all broadcast media. Our results show that ads on AM radio increase the vote shares of the PAN and PRD, but not the previously-hegemonic PRI. Consistent with our model, campaign advertising is most effective in poorly informed and politically uncompetitive electoral precincts, and against locally dominant parties of intermediate strength.
Understanding Inflation in India Laurence Ball Anusha Chari Prachi Mishra
This paper examines the behavior of quarterly inflation in India since 1994, both headline inflation and core inflation as measured by the weighted median of price changes across industries. We explain core inflation with a Phillips curve in which the inflation rate depends on a slow-moving average of past inflation and on the deviation of output from trend. Headline inflation is more volatile than core: it fluctuates due to large changes in the relative prices of certain industries, which are largely but not exclusively industries that produce food and energy. There is some evidence that changes in headline inflation feed into expected inflation and future core inflation. Several aspects of India’s inflation process are similar to inflation in advanced economies in the 1970s and 80s.
Growth Policy, Agglomeration, and (the Lack of) Competition Wyatt J. Brooks Joseph P. Kaboski Yao Amber Li
Industrial clusters are promoted by policy and generally viewed as good for growth and development, but both clusters and policies may also enable non-competitive behavior. This paper studies the presence of non-competitive pricing in geographic industrial clusters. We develop, validate, and apply a novel test for collusive behavior. We derive the test from the solution to a partial cartel of perfectly colluding firms in an industry. Outside of a cartel, a firm's markup depends on its market share, but in the cartel, markups across firms converge and depend instead on the total market share of the cartel. Empirically, we validate the test using plants with common owners, and then test for collusion using data from Chinese manufacturing firms (1999-2009). We find strong evidence for non-competitive pricing within a subset of industrial clusters, and we find the level of non-competitive pricing is about four times higher in Chinese special economic zones than outside those zones.
How Large Are the Gains from Economic Integration? Theory and Evidence from U.S. Agriculture, 1880-1997 Arnaud Costinot Dave Donaldson
In this paper we develop a new approach to measuring the gains from economic integration based on a generalization of the Ricardian model in which heterogeneous factors of production are allocated to multiple sectors in multiple local markets based on comparative advantage. We implement this approach using data on crop markets in approximately 2,600 U.S. counties from 1880 to 1997. Central to our empirical analysis is the use of a novel agronomic data source on predicted output by crop for small spatial units. Crucially, this dataset contains information about the productivity of all units for all crops, not just those that are actually being grown—an essential input for measuring the gains from trade. Using this new approach we find substantial long-run gains from economic integration among US agricultural markets, benefits that are similar in magnitude to those due to productivity improvements over that same period.
Distributional National Accounts: Methods and Estimates for the United States Thomas Piketty Emmanuel Saez Gabriel Zucman
This paper combines tax, survey, and national accounts data to estimate the distribution of national income in the United States since 1913. Our distributional national accounts capture 100% of national income, allowing us to compute growth rates for each quantile of the income distribution consistent with macroeconomic growth. We estimate the distribution of both pre-tax and post-tax income, making it possible to provide a comprehensive view of how government redistribution affects inequality. Average pre-tax national income per adult has increased 60% since 1980, but we find that it has stagnated for the bottom 50% of the distribution at about $16,000 a year. The pre-tax income of the middle class—adults between the median and the 90th percentile—has grown 40% since 1980, faster than what tax and survey data suggest, due in particular to the rise of tax-exempt fringe benefits. Income has boomed at the top: in 1980, top 1% adults earned on average 27 times more than bottom 50% adults, while they earn 81 times more today. The upsurge of top incomes was first a labor income phenomenon but has mostly been a capital income phenomenon since 2000. The government has offset only a small fraction of the increase in inequality. The reduction of the gender gap in earnings has mitigated the increase in inequality among adults. The share of women, however, falls steeply as one moves up the labor income distribution, and is only 11% in the top 0.1% today.
Globalization and Wage Inequality Elhanan Helpman
Globalization has been blamed for rising inequality in rich and poor countries. Yet the views of many protagonists in this debate are not based on evidence. To help form an evidence-based opinion, I review in this paper the theoretical and empirical literature on the relationship between globalization and wage inequality. While the initial analysis that started in the early 1990s focused on a particular mechanism that links trade to wages, subsequent studies have considered several other channels, and the quantitative assessment of the size of these influences has been carried out in multiple studies. Building on this research, I conclude that trade played an appreciable role in increasing wage inequality, but that its cumulative effect has been modest, and that globalization does not explain the preponderance of the rise in wage inequality within countries.
Dominant Currency Paradigm Camila Casas Federico J. Díez Gita Gopinath Pierre-Olivier Gourinchas
Most trade is invoiced in very few currencies. Despite this, the Mundell-Fleming benchmark and its variants focus on pricing in the producer's currency or in local currency. We model instead a ‘dominant currency paradigm’ for small open economies characterized by three features: pricing in a dominant currency; pricing complementarities, and imported input use in production. Under this paradigm: (a) terms of trade are stable; (b) dominant currency exchange rate pass-through into export and import prices is high regardless of destination or origin of goods; (c) exchange rate pass-through of non-dominant currencies is small; (d) expenditure switching occurs mostly via imports and export expansions following depreciations are weak. Using merged firm level and customs data from Colombia we document strong support for the dominant currency paradigm and reject the alternatives of producer currency and local currency pricing.
Older Peoples' Willingness to Delay Social Security Claiming Raimond Maurer Olivia S. Mitchell
We have designed and fielded an experimental module in the 2014 HRS which seeks to measure older persons’ willingness to voluntarily defer claiming of Social Security benefits. In addition, we evaluate the stated willingness of older individuals to work longer, depending on the Social Security incentives offered to delay claiming their benefits. Our project extends previous work by analyzing the results from our HRS module and comparing findings from other data sources which included very much smaller samples of older persons. We show that half of the respondents would delay claiming if no work requirement were in place under the status quo, and only slightly fewer, 46%, with a work requirement. We also asked respondents how large a lump sum they would need with or without a work requirement. In the former case, the average amount needed to induce delayed claiming was about $60,400, while when part-time work was required, the average was $66,700. This implies a low utility value of leisure foregone of only $6,300, or under 20% of average household income.
Business Cycles, Investment Shocks, and the "Barro-King" Curse Guido Ascari Louis Phaneuf Eric Sims
Recent empirical evidence identifies investment shocks as key driving forces behind business cycle fluctuations. However, existing New Keynesian models emphasizing these shocks counterfactually imply a negative unconditional correlation between consumption growth and investment growth, a weak positive unconditional correlation between consumption growth and output growth and anomalous profiles of cross-correlations involving consumption growth. These anomalies arise because of a short-run contractionary effect a positive investment shock on consumption. Such counterfactual co-movements are typical of the "Barro-King curse" (Barro and King 1984), wherein models with a real business cycle core must rely on technology shocks to account for the observed co-movement among output, consumption, investment, and hours. We show that two realistic additions to an otherwise standard medium scale New Keynesian model – namely, roundabout production and real per capita output growth stemming from trend growth in neutral and investment-specific technologies – can break the Barro-King curse and provide a more accurate account of unconditional business cycle comovements more generally. These two features substantially magnify the effects of neutral technology and investment shocks on aggregate fluctuations and generate a rise of consumption on impact of a positive investment shock.
Sanitation, Disease Externalities, and Anemia: Evidence From Nepal Diane Coffey Michael Geruso Dean Spears
Anemia impairs physical and cognitive development in children and reduces human capital accumulation. The prior economics literature has focused on the role of inadequate nutrition in causing anemia. This paper is the first to show that sanitation, a public good, significantly contributes to preventing anemia. We identify effects by exploiting rapid and differential improvement in sanitation across regions of Nepal between 2006 and 2011. Within regions over time, cohorts of children exposed to better community sanitation developed higher hemoglobin levels. Our results highlight a previously undocumented externality of open defecation, which is today practiced by over a billion people worldwide.
Asymmetric Effects of Non-Pecuniary Signals on Search and Purchase Behavior for Energy-Efficient Durable Goods J. Scott Holladay Jacob LaRiviere David M. Novgorodsky Michael Price
We report the results of a field experiment where we exogenously vary the use of social comparisons "nudges" and subsidies for participation in an in-home energy audit program, and follow subjects through to the subsequent purchase of durable goods. We therefore can compare the causal effect of financial incentives and nudges along two margins, audits, which we liken to search, and purchase of durables. Using data on nearly 100,000 households, we document an asymmetry; nudges increase audits, but lead to lower rates of purchase. We find no evidence of a differential response for those offered a financial incentive. These differences suggest heterogeneity in the motives of the marginal consumer induced by nudges versus prices.
Improving the Measurement of Earnings Dynamics Moira Daly Dmytro Hryshko Iourii Manovskii
The stochastic process for earnings is the key element of incomplete markets models in modern quantitative macroeconomics. We show that a simple modification of the canonical process used in the literature leads to a dramatic improvement in the measurement of earnings dynamics in administrative and survey data alike. Empirically, earnings at the start or end of earnings spells are lower and more volatile than the observations in the interior of earnings histories, reflecting the effects of working less than the full year as well as deviations of wages due to e.g. tenure effects. Ignoring these properties of earnings, as is standard in the literature, leads to a substantial mismeasurement of the variances of permanent and transitory shocks and induces the large and widely documented divergence in the estimates of these variances based on fitting the earnings moments in levels or growth rates. Accounting for these effects enables more accurate analysis using quantitative models with permanent and transitory earnings risk, and improves empirical estimates of consumption insurance against permanent earnings shocks.
A Tale of Two Tails: Commuting and the Fuel Price Response in Driving Kenneth Gillingham Anders Munk-Nielsen
The consumer price responsiveness of driving demand is central to the welfare consequences of fuel price changes. This study uses rich data covering the entire population of vehicles and consumers in Denmark to find a medium-run price elasticity of driving of -0.30. We uncover an important feature of driving demand: two small groups of much more responsive households that make up the lower and upper tails of the work distance distribution. The first group lives close to work in urban areas. The second group lives outside of major urban areas and has the longest commutes. Access to public transport appears to be the force behind the existence of the tails, enabling the switch away from driving. We find that a fuel price increase of 1 DKK/liter implies an average deadweight loss of 0.66 DKK/liter, but there is considerable heterogeneity and the tails bear a larger share of the loss.
Commitment vs. Flexibility with Costly Verification Marina Halac Pierre Yared
We introduce costly verification into a general delegation framework. A principal faces an agent who is better informed about the efficient action but biased towards higher actions. An audit verifies the agent’s information, but is costly. The principal chooses a permissible action set as a function of the audit decision and result. We show that if the audit cost is small enough, a threshold with an escape clause (TEC) is optimal: the agent can select any action up to a threshold, or request audit and the efficient action if the threshold is sufficiently binding. For higher audit costs, the principal may instead prefer auditing only intermediate actions. However, if the principal cannot commit to inefficient allocations following the audit decision and result, TEC is always optimal. Our results provide a theoretical foundation for the use of TEC in practice, including in capital budgeting in organizations, fiscal policy, and consumption-savings problems.
Recent Flattening in the Higher Education Wage Premium: Polarization, Skill Downgrading, or Both? Robert G. Valletta
Wage gaps between workers with a college or graduate degree and those with only a high school degree rose rapidly in the United States during the 1980s. Since then, the rate of growth in these wage gaps has progressively slowed, and though the gaps remain large, they were essentially unchanged between 2010 and 2015. I assess this flattening over time in higher education wage premiums with reference to two related explanations for changing U.S. employment patterns: (i) a shift away from middle-skilled occupations driven largely by technological change (“polarization”); and (ii) a general weakening in the demand for advanced cognitive skills (“skill downgrading”). Analyses of wage and employment data from the U.S. Current Population Survey suggest that both factors have contributed to the flattening of higher education wage premiums.
Meet the Oligarchs: Business Legitimacy, State Capacity and Taxation Rafael Di Tella Juan Dubra Alejandro Luis Lagomarsino
We analyze the role of people’s beliefs about the rich in the determination of public policy in the context of a randomized online survey experiment. A question we study is the desirability of government-private sector meetings, a variable we argue is connected to State capacity. Survey respondents primed with negative views about business leaders want fewer meetings, as well as higher taxes to the top 1% and more regulation. We also study how these effects change when subjects are (additionally) primed with positive/negative views about government officials. Distrust in the government increases the preferred tax rate on the top 1% only when business legitimacy is low. A model with multiple equilibria helps interpret these findings. In one of the equilibria, meetings are allowed, business legitimacy is high, and people set a low income tax rate for businesspeople. In the other, meetings are forbidden, business legitimacy is low, and people set high taxes to punish the businesspeople for their corrupt behavior.
Projections and Uncertainties About Climate Change in an Era of Minimal Climate Policies William D. Nordhaus
Climate change remains one of the major international environmental challenges facing nations. Yet nations have to date taken minimal policies to slow climate change. Moreover, there has been no major improvement in emissions trends as of the latest data. The current study uses the updated DICE model to present new projections and the impacts of alternative climate policies. It also presents a new set of estimates of the uncertainties about future climate change and compares the results will those of other integrated assessment models. The study confirms past estimates of likely rapid climate change over the next century if there are not major climate-change policies. It suggests that it will be extremely difficult to achieve the 2°C target of international agreements even if ambitious policies are introduced in the near term. The required carbon price needed to achieve current targets has risen over time as policies have been delayed.

Bitcoin In 2018

It's February 19th, 2018. I wake up, check my phone. Good, bitcoin is up another 5% overnight to around $18k per coin. The world is starting to come around to the notion of decentralized currency, but us early adopters know there's still more to come. A lot more.
I've been accumulating coins since 2014 with each paycheck. Not to brag, but I've got quite the nest egg. Best of all, nobody knows it but me. No bankers. No stock brokers. Just me and the blockchain.
I shower and get dressed. I take my dog for a walk. The sun is shining and all of the drones are headed to their lousy jobs. My phone beeps. Ha, Roger Ver just tweeted that Western Union is getting bought by Coinbase. Nice.
After a short breakfast I head to the car dealership where I test drive the latest from Tesla. Think I'll wait a bit. After world markets started quoting the price of oil in bitcoin, I don't really sweat the ups and downs of gas prices. Think I'll stick with what I have. Besides, I don't want my neighbors to realize that the scruffy guy next door is one of the richest people in town.
I drop by my office (literally MY office since I own the whole building). Bitcoin is up another 2% on the WU news..sweet! Most of my tenants pay their rent in bitcoin. Every month they each swing by with a Trezor. No need for a shady middle man or bank. Ah, forgot to mention that my office building is actually an old bank. They seem to be closing up left and right these days.
After a little work (have to keep up appearances, right) I close up and head over to the bar. Things are a little slow so I fire up some satoshi dice on the ol' android phone. Too bad IOS fell off the map...such a shame that ApplePay took the whole thing down. Over in the corner of the bar some goobers play video poker. Good luck fellas have fun putting your cash in uncle sam's wallet.
With not much going on around town I head home and watch Rise and Rise of Bitcoin Part 7 on Netflix. Man I love that movie. The part about Lawsky's trial is my favorite part. Afterwards I fire up the grill and cook up some prime steaks from the butcher, paid for in bitcoin of course. I love getting a 20% discount for paying in bitcoin. Just as the delicious smoke starts drifting away from the grill, the neighborhood suckers start coming home from their jobs. Bet you guys wish you hadn't bet on fiat.
Edit: Wow a lot of people think I'm nuts. I'm not saying that every single thing I predicted will come true. Also contrary to the negative comments I'm not obsessed with the price of bitcoin. This is just a thought exercise. It was Dwight Eisenhower that said "plans are useless, but planning is indispensable"
Edit2: Trolls are jumping on my 20% discount prediction. What you fail to understand is that when bitcoin starts to take off people are not going to want to hold fiat because the value will drop. So business owners will have an incentive to be paid in a strong currency and willing to accept less of it relative to fiat. After all why would someone accept something that rises in value on par with something that loses value? Econ 101
