  1. Odd:
    1 Jonathan Hall is the Head of Economic Research, Legal and Public Policy at Uber Technologies. He holds a PhD
    in Economics from Harvard University.
    2 Cory Kendrick is a Data Scientist at Uber Technologies. She holds a BA in Cognitive Science from Dartmouth
    3 Chris Nosko is an Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business. He holds a PhD in
    Economics from Harvard University.
    As part of a research collaboration, Uber has provided Professor Nosko with access to internal data to facilitate his
    research on the workings of the surge algorithm. This document is part of that larger collaboration and was prepared
    by Professor Nosko with the help of internal Uber data scientists. Professor Nosko has not been paid by Uber either
    for the creation of this document or as part of the broader research collaboration.

    Certianly seems like Uber had a VERY heavy hand in this study.
