How Is Econometrics Changing? (Josh Angrist, Guido Imbens, Isaiah Andrews)
ASR Confidence:
0.80
Description:

Nobel laureates Joshua Angrist and Guido Imbens examine how the field of econometrics is evolving with John Bates Clark award winner Isaiah Andrews. They explore the rise of regression discontinuity designs, creative uses of randomized trials, and how big tech is affecting economics. They also discuss how empirical problems should drive econometrics, their reaction to how LATE is being used, and the reduced form vs. structural debate. And finally, Guido Imbens (the editor of Econometrica), makes the case for shorter papers!
