  5. Webinar: Deirdre McCloskey: Almost Never Use Tests of Statistical Significance; Instead Use Oomph

    Deirdre McCloskey, (PhD, Economics, Harvard) is a co-author of 20 books, including, with Stephen Ziliak, "The Cult of Statistical Significance" (2008). It describes how widespread overuse of tests of statistical "significance" has negatively affected economics, medical research, political science, psychology, and sociology. It diverts scientists from addressing the key scientific question, "How Much?" The solution is simple: get back to seeking oomph. It would be wrong to abandon math or statistics, but they need every time to be put into a context of How Much, as they are in chemistry, in most biology, in history, and in engineering science. In this webinar, Dr. McCloskey addresses these topics.

    McCloskey is distinguished professor of economics, history, English, and communication at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The webinar is sponsored by the Michigan Institute for Teaching and Research in Economics (MITRE), the UM Department of Economics, and the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research.

  6. Robert Solow in Conversation with Paul Krugman: “Inequality: What Can Be Done?”

    On May 1, 2015, Robert Solow (Professor of Economics, Emeritus, MIT) and Paul Krugman (Distinguished Professor of Economics, The Graduate Center, beginning Fall 2015) discussed Anthony B. Atkinson’s new book, “Inequality: What Can Be Done?” (Harvard University Press, 2015: https://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674504769) at the Russell Sage Foundation in New York City.

    Solow and Krugman’s conversation was introduced and moderated by LIS Director Janet Gornick, professor of Political Science and Sociology at the Graduate Center.

    The British economist and renowned inequality scholar Tony Atkinson (Oxford and London School of Economics) argues that economic inequality has reached unacceptable levels in many countries. In this ambitious book, Atkinson lays out an agenda for reducing inequality. His policy proposals span five areas: technology, employment, the sharing of capital, taxation, and social security.

    “Inequality: What Can Be Done” is a vigorous and powerful call to action, rich in theory, evidence, and practical experience. Solow and Krugman examine the desirability, viability, and feasibility of Atkinson’s policy recommendations—with an eye toward translating his arguments into the United States context.

    Further, Atkinson discussed the book in a 35-minute presentation taped in London, April 2015: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhKcjzz2Myg.
