Learning by Asking Those Who Are Doing
This paper argues that interviews and surveys are an underutilized research tool in economics. In particular, it defends the propositions that the interview method might work better than more conventional theory and econometrics as a way to learn about the reasons for wage and price stickiness. The research design for a large-scale interview study of pricing behavior is described in detail. This study will "test" the empirical relevance of twelve different theories.
