today in the livestream we had many discussions that were left open and were hoping will be addressed later in the book. Youtube is still processing the chat transcript but in the meanwhile here’s what I remember
Causal assumptions and causal Conclusions
What assumptions are needed to perform causal inference? Once we make those assumptions what type of conclusions can be make?
Differing schools of thoughts in Econometrics
There are different schools of thoughts even within the econometrics group. Someone had pointed out that the two schools mentioned converge to the same thing, but nonetheless we’re curious why there are two to begin with. This book hopefully will give us both in one text.
Randomization, what kind its needed, how much, and is it worth it
Many discussions about randomization as that was one of the key takeaways from the introduction. Does randomization need to be included in a controlled way, or can we take advantage of “natural” randomization that occurs without explicit design?
In this last topic synthetic control was brought up a couple of times.
Is there anything else that I missed?
