Nosek on the elusiveness of truth

Posted By Russ Roberts On September 11, 2012 @ 2:31 pm In Data,Podcast | Comments Disabled

Truth in the social sciences (and elsewhere) is elusive. This week’s EconTalk is a conversation with Brian Nosek [1] 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.
