Applied economics, contrast explanation and asymmetric information
The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the workings of an explanatory method for applied economics. It is a method that is rarely explicitly examined or defended in the discipline, but which, I believe, has a lot of promise for the sorts of contexts that economists must address. My strategy is to show that, and how, the method in question effectively underpins at least one study already widely regarded as explanatorily successful. Copyright The Author 2008.
