Transparency and credibility of economic research
Economics is facing a credibility crisis. This crisis is visible in economic policies that routinely disappoint. In this seminar, Professor Chris Doucouliagos will discuss the nature of this crisis and provide an overview of recent global efforts to improve the credibility of economic research.
