    It'd be reasonable to not grasp that paper, I just skimmed half of it and although I don't have a problem with the symbols I don't have any intuition on that topic. This can be explained if you haven't read the previous literature like Hart and Tirole (1988) and most importantly Rosen (1978). It can take awhile just performing a literature review (one of the hard parts about theory, imagine like 15 of those types of papers and you have to understand before you get to the paper you want to understand). Not only that, but you haven't taken your Mres courses yet (not that I have either) so a grain of salt is needed. But, there's a lot of tools that are being used in that paper, and again it's the time crunch with a thesis deadline that's most concerning. With some applied micro paper you can most likely just reg y x robust and your literature review will revolve around papers with summary tables, it is a strictly easier path. I know I'm not choosing that path since IO can be daunting and experiments cost money.

    Nah it's normal. That paper's built on a bunch of other theory papers. It'd be like trying to figure out the house by only looking at the roof. Plus you haven't had your Mres classes yet, so after you had some exposure to some solid game theory who knows. Take a grain a salt at the moment, there's still a lot of topics in the literature I struggle with too.

    Oh, that's good to hear. I'll continue to power through then. Thanks a lot.
