Boeing and the economy, more tariffs, and coronavirus contagion

In The Wall Street Journal's newsletter on the economy, they're reading Professor of Economics Basit Zafar and his co-author's working paper, "Ask and You Shall Receive? Gender Differences in Regrades in College."

In this story published Jan. 28, 2020, in The Wall Street Journal:

Male students are 18.6% more likely than female students to receive favorable grade changes initiated by instructors. These gender differences cannot be explained by observable characteristics of the students, instructors, and the classes. To understand the mechanisms underlying these gendered outcomes, we conduct surveys of students and instructors, which reveal that regrade requests are prevalent, and that male students are more likely than female students to ask for regrades on the intensive margin.
