Nosek on the elusiveness of truth

Truth in the social sciences (and elsewhere) is elusive. This week’s EconTalk is a conversation with Brian Nosek  on the conflict between truth and professional incentives that exists in university life, particularly in the social sciences. My favorite line from the co-authored paper of his that we discuss in this podcast:
Published and true are not synonyms.
Very important to remember. Enjoy the podcast.
