Quinn Connelly on how to write efficiently, like an economist.

Quinn is a former student and professional blogger who writes efficiently, like an economist.  Here
 are my favorite tips:
4. Clarity: “Figure out the one central and novel contribution of your paper. Write this down in one paragraph...The first sentence is the hardest,” so “start with your central contribution.”
6. Skimming: “Your readers are busy and impatient. No reader will ever read the whole thing from start to finish. Readers skim. You have to make it easy for them to skim.”
