Replicants Incorporated

Longtime CG friend W. Robert Reed is firing up the replication train in economics!

Here is a scary table from his paper in Econ Journal Watch:


Scary because it says 2/3 of published replications fail. Sure there’s probably selection bias but that’s eye popping nonetheless.  As Bob points out, the JAE routinely publishes simple confirmations and even there almost half of the pieces fail to replicate.

You can join Bob and learn more about the state of replication in economics here at The Replication Network.

Join us and you too can see attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
