Thomas Herndon

Thomas Herndon is a graduate student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst working on a simple homework assignment – pick an economics paper and see if you can replicate the results. Thomas tried Growth in a Time of Debt, a famous manuscript of two Harvard Professors, and a paper that argues that economic growth slows dramatically when the size of a country’s debt rises above 90% of Gross Domestic Product, the overall size of the economy.
