What I have been reading

  1. Angus Deaton and Nancy Cartwright on understanding and misunderstanding RCTs. A nice summary of the RCT trend in development economics and its limitations.
  2. Book review by Margaret McMillan on the making of Africa.
  3. Redding et al’s summary of recent developments in quantitative spatial economics. This area seems methodologically developed, and the approaches to model the general equilibrium can be applied to wider contexts beyond international trade.
