(How DO you measure a subjective thing like “attractiveness”?)

My overall point here is that beauty standards are deeply rooted in colorism and racism so I just feel like “attractiveness” here would be selected upon who looks white and the most wealthy. Just my take.
Great paper though, excited to dive in. #EconTwitter https://twitter.com/itsafronomics/status/1359170217478356993?s=20
