I have been speaking to you in the forums and have found your posts helpful. I was hoping you could shed some light on some questions I have.
Firstly, you had commented that NYC Fed pays about 55K and that Boston would pay less. Does this knowledge come from personal experience (did you receive an offer for ~55K from NYC) or is it just based on what you have heard?
Secondly, do you happen to know how the Boston Fed compares to NYC and DC in terms of quality of economists, quality of fellow RAs, signalling to graduate programs, and exit opportunities into other jobs (World Bank, etc.)
Thanks a bunch for your help.
