Experimental Conversations: New Book on Randomized Controlled Trials

If you are interested in the use of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in economics–particularly in development economics–Timothy Ogden has a new book out titled Experimental Conversations: Perspectives on Randomized Trials in Development Economics.

I am preparing a longer review that should see the light of day in the near future, but in the meantime, the book features a series of conversations with prominent economists–from Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo to Angust Deaton, and from Jonathan Morduch to David McKenzie–not only about the advantages and disadvantages of RCTs, but also about the past, present, and future of RCTs.

If you are not already familiar with his work, Timothy Ogden is the managing director of the Financial Access Initiative at NYU, and he is the editor in chief of Philanthropy Action.
