Several interesting studies/papers on randomised trials have come out lately. If time permits, I may come back to comment on them, but for now, I’ll just post the links for those who are interested in the topic:
- Critiques of randomised trials from Angus Deaton (also here) and James Heckman (also here)
- A defence of randomised trials from Guido Imbens (also here)
- On the same theme, I posted links in mid-2008 to this article in the Economist, and this conference at the Brookings Institution (older, but relevant to the debate)
- An FT article on how Steven Levitt and John List are using randomised trials in business.
