  1. BOOK LAUNCH: Randomized Control Trials in the Field of Development: A Critical Perspective

    Have RCTs really “dramatically improved our ability to fight poverty in practice”? Which sorts of questions are they able to address and which do they fail to answer? Is causal explanation the only way to understand poverty, and do RCTs systematically manage to provide causal explanations? Are RCTs really a gold standard? What are the dangers in their misuse? Is the supremacy of experimentation in development economics, as commended by the Nobel jury, scientifically legitimate and politically desirable? This webinar to launch the book "Randomized Control Trials in the Field of Development: A Critical Perspective" presents a discussion with five representatives of the editors and authors.
