Title : Putting on my economist's hat.
When I think as an economist, which I do from time to time, something mystifies me: the amount of time computer scientists spend writing and reviewing manuscripts that don't get accepted. Possible explanations -- acceptance is inherently unknowable, multiple submission is parasitic on reviews, submission helps to bulk up a venue, etc -- have strong arguments against them. I will try to show how we might think more precisely about such questions, and what we find out when we do so.
