How much do working papers help in applications?

If you are a co-author with a research economist, then a working paper definitely helps because it is evidence that the economist thinks highly of you.

Very, very few PhD applicants have written serious papers on their own.

Thank you startz. I am currently in a masters program (not top programs such as Chicago mapss or lse eme). I have a solo working paper but did talk to my professor a lot during the project. My professor will write one of my letters. I was worrying whether the paper will be taken seriously since as you said very very few applicants have serious solo papers.
