2019 Session Highlights

The Role of Economic Theory in Empirical Analysis>>

This session explores the role of economic theory in empirical analysis. Each presenter will begin with some general comments on the role of theory in empirical analysis, and then present a research paper to illustrate how the theory informs the empirical analysis. The presentation would not focus on the theoretical model per se nor the empirical results, but rather on how the one informs the other, i.e., the link between the two.
