@rortybomb @ModeledBehavior you gave averages that were way lower than when retirees were dropped. Think my criticism was clear in my post
@morganwarstler @rortybomb @jeffspross @DannyVinik @ModeledBehavior I like Meyer & Sullivan a lot, but I’d say this is prob best-case scen
@rortybomb @ModeledBehavior if you sensed annoyance it was bcuz we shldnt plug something we write after it has been shown to be badly off
@DannyVinik @jeffspross @rortybomb other weird thing re CBO quantiles is that they are based on size-adj inc, but means w/in them aren’t adj
@DannyVinik @jeffspross @rortybomb that’s right. In piece I argue it’s prob fair for some out-of-LF guys but not others (students, retirees)
@DannyVinik @jeffspross @rortybomb mostly an issue for guys. I tried 2 show right way to think abt male earnings here http://t.co/QCv9Brk6pM
@DannyVinik @jeffspross @rortybomb dropouts will RAISE mkt incomes vs if those guys had to work & were in data

@jeffspross @DannyVinik @rortybomb their market incomes also include employees’ share of corporate income taxes too, which are imputed
@jeffspross @DannyVinik @rortybomb quantiles of size-adjusted pre-tax post-transfer income. I might be misremembering.
@jeffspross @DannyVinik @rortybomb yes, more or less. If I recall, tho, they don’t show quantiles by market income, just mkt inc ave’s by…
@ptbrennan11 @rortybomb @jeffspross @DannyVinik @mattyglesias not bad. Also issues w/ stock options and S corp vs C corp in tax data
@DannyVinik @rortybomb @jeffspross …include employer’s share of payroll taxes, which is just part of compensation 2 firm. I don’t gen add it
@DannyVinik @rortybomb @jeffspross when/how to value retirement benefits and capital gains is big issue, but few good solutions. Cld also…
