I'm a pre-doc economist at GPI, working on various things in the economics of tech growth and policy, as well as long-run economic modelling.


Empirics has come to dominate econ (all but 1? of the recent American economic review articles were empiric-focused). Where's the data for a treatment effect of a treatment that hasn't occurred? Forecasts and expert predictions are not very stylish either, compared to "true causal effects." I don't know the best approach to solve this and am open to ideas
