On the scope of experiments in economics: comments on Siakantaris

Author

  • Francesco Guala

Abstract

The problem of 'parallelism' or external validity can in principle be solved; I try to show how by means of two simple examples. I also criticise attempts to dismiss experimental economics that appeal to alleged ontological differences between the natural and the social realm. Copyright 2002, Oxford University Press.
