---- Disclosure of Financial Relationships for Liran Einav ----
I would like to disclose that I am an adviser to Nuna Health, a data analytics startup company, which specializes in analytics of health insurance claims. I am not being paid by them, but have received equity (nominal value is less than $1,000; the market value is hard to assess).
