The IGM Forum reacts to:

The award for the strangest answer goes to Caroline Hoxby, who is maximally confident (10/10) that the answer is “uncertain.”
Hopefully the IGM will address low-skilled immigration soon, and evaluate the average effects on humanity as well as the average effects on U.S. citizens.
Update: Adam Ozimek critiques the IGM’s agnostic dissidents.
