    So, PhD hopefuls, your payment is a journal publication or two. If you don't want such payment, just ignore the numerous posts. If you do want, research out. Having a good pub won't hurt, but it's not a must. So you can go with Chief Zubrus and just ignore. Simple..
    You needlessly spammed this forum instead of just writing one post. But more importantly, you are being deceitful. You are acting like getting a "good pub or two" is a given, and that is why you are offering no monetary compensation. Truth is, getting a "good pub" working for you (for free) will happen with very low probability (if not zero), but you are acting as if it is a given. Shame on you for being deceitful. I agree that its a free market, but you are being a snake. Good luck as an "early career economist" trying to exploit prospective students.

    This person is either a grad student, a non-faculty member, or a faculty member not at a top school (given that he/she cannot pay their RAs). In any case, working for this person without pay is insanity.

    So go chill. About the pub, well, as you grow in the profession, you will know that publishing in decent some places is "almost surely". Or are you not aware that some good journals that others can kill to publish in, some of these journals actually go out of their way to solicit contributions from other individuals? You didn't know this? Anyway, you have known now.
    Think about it carefully. Yes I am angry. But why? Because back when I was a prospective applicant, I was willing to do anything. So I know the state of mind that applicants are in, and you are trying to exploit that. It is wrong.

    Maybe I am junior to you (I highly doubt it) but that is irrelevant to the conversation. You are trying to exploit gullible students with the lure of a publication (improbable) and letter (not good from someone that can't even afford to pay their RAs).

    Good luck in your "early career position" and enjoy your pubs in the no-name journals that will publish "almost surely" for a submission fee.

    Edit: I meant you, sorry!
    For a moment there you sounded like his professor
