CentrePiece - The Magazine for Economic Performance from Centre for Economic Performance, LSE
How should researchers interested in social and economic policy untangle cause and effect? A new book by Joshua Angrist and Jörn Steffen Pischke shows how the five core econometric tools -randomised trials, regression, instrumental variables, regression discontinuity designs and differences-in-differences - accomplish this. These tools lie at the heart of CEP research.
