The animation fixer takes it a step further with suggested fixes or "most likely resolution" mode, an option that enables the system to tweak the data in a way that maintains tangencies and provides smoother character motions.
In addition, the simple schooling model is subject to an identification problem if the data in log earnings-schooling space are generated by tangencies between concave earnings functions and linear iso-present value curves.
