Applying economics, using evidence

Journal of Economic Methodology 16 (2):139-144 (2009)
Abstract
Traditionally, evidence in economics has been seen in the context of theory choice. Much of recent methodological debate on the role of evidence has turned on the recognition that the status and role of evidence is somewhat more involved in economics than the conventional wisdom suggests. Rather than approaching this question in general terms from a starting point of philosophy of science or even science studies, our aim in this introduction to a symposium of articles on evidence in economics is to approach the question from the perspective of applied economics.
