Building Bridges between Structural and Program Evaluation Approaches to Evaluating Policy
Journal of Economic Literature, 2010, vol. 48, issue 2, 356-98
This paper compares the structural approach to economic policy analysis with the program evaluation approach. It offers a third way to do policy analysis that combines the best features of both approaches. I illustrate the value of this alternative approach by making the implicit economics of LATE explicit, thereby extending the interpretability and range of policy questions that LATE can answer.
