Summary
  • "Economists have long sought to learn the effect of a "treatment" on some outcome of interest, just as doctors do with their patients. But research on treatment response rarely provides all the information that planners would like to have. How then should planners use the available evidence to choose treatments?"
  • "This book addresses key aspects of this broad question, exploring and partially resolving pervasive problems of identification and statistical inference that arise when studying treatment response and making treatment choices. Charles Manski addresses the treatment-choice problem directly using Abraham Wald's statistical decision theory, taking into account the ambiguity that arises from identification problems under weak but justifiable assumptions."--BOOK JACKET
