Link to my History Paper

I described working on my economic history paper a few posts ago. I thought I would share the not-so-final product. Here's a link to Measuring Public Economic Informedness, my term paper for Econ 210A. In brief, I look at how frequently the New York Times mentions the word "unemployment" beginning in 1914, and study how that is related to the actual unemployment rate.

Consider it a working draft. There are ideas that I need to pursue more thoroughly, other ideas I probably need to leave out, and empirical techniques I need to learn. If you do get a chance to look at it, I would welcome comments here or by email.
