This week I spoke with Dr. Christine Percheski, Associate Professor of Sociology at Northwestern University, about causes and implications of widespread declining birthrates. But first, I recently spoke with Dr. Judith Kas, postdoctoral researcher at the WZB Social Science Center in Berlin, about her recent paper titled “The role of reputation systems in digital discrimination.” The paper is scheduled to be published in the Socio-Economic Review, and is co-authored by Rense Corten and Arnout van de Rijt.

Segment 1 -- Judith Kas on “The role of reputation systems in digital discrimination.”

Segment 2 -- Christine Percheski on evidence, causes, and emergent questions of widespread fertility decline.
