Handbook of Research Methods and Applications in Heterodox Economics

  • Handbooks of Research Methods and Applications series

Edited by Frederic S. Lee and Bruce Cronin

Despite the important critiques of the mainstream offered by heterodox economics, the dominant method remains econometrics. This major new Handbook provides an invaluable introduction to a range of alternative research methods better suited for analysing the social data prominent in heterodox research projects, including survey, historical, ethnographic, experimental, and mixed approaches, together with factor, cluster, complex, and social network analytics. Introductions to each method are complemented by descriptions of applications in practice.

Chapter 8: Experimental methods and data

Andrew Mearman

Abstract

This chapter explores how heterodox economists might deploy experimental methods. It considers the basic form of the pure experiment and notes some key challenges to it. It then goes on to discuss alternative experimental designs, which are responses to the challenges of the pure experiment. The chapter then considers statistical analysis of experimental data.
