That's your bloody post-truth

Abstract: The purpose of this Occasional Paper is not to go into the general realms of misinformation, fake news, trust in experts and the rest. That's well-trodden ground, perhaps even hackneyed, with at least three books published on 'post truth' in 2017 alone. The purpose is to ask: What should we do, if anything, to maintain confidence in economic statistics? To examine this question, this Occasional Paper collates four talks delivered at the ESCoE Conference on Economic Measurement at King's College London in May 2019
