Corruption and Fraud in Science

Posted By Russ Roberts On January 31, 2011 @ 3:27 pm In Data,Podcast,Scientism | Comments Disabled

In this week’s EconTalk, I talk with Brian Deer [1], the journalist who discovered that a study alleging a link between the MMR vaccine and autism was not only a fraud, but a corrupt fraud. Deer tells a riveting story–enjoy.

Is this case the tip of the iceberg or a rare event? I don’t know, but it’s amazing to me that the original study with 12 observations was published in the first place.
