I'm wondering about the downvotes to this question and all its answers:
- The question started with +5/-1 on day 1, +1/-1 on day 2, and +0/-3 on day 3 (ongoing). I'm surprised that day 1 voters mostly thought it was useful, but day 3 voters mostly thought it's a poor question. How can I improve it?
- The accepted answer started with +3/-1 on day 1, but went from there to +1/-4 on day 2, again a heavy turnaround.
- The other answers have attracted only downvotes.
I'm mostly wondering about the question and accepted answer, which had a turnaround from mostly upvoted to mostly downvoted (counting by day, not cumulatively). What does such a turnaround indicate? Is that common on Economics.SE? How can the question and accepted answer be improved to meet the standards of Economics.SE? Is it the lack of references to peer reviewed literature, or are there other issues? It does not seem to have received any votes to close, so it would appear the community does consider it on-topic.
