Following an introduction by ERS Administrator Spiro Stefanou, CBEAR co-director Paul Ferraro (Johns Hopkins University) will discuss research practices in agricultural economics that can affect the credibility and replicability of empirical results. Based on an analysis of recent publications from leading agricultural economics journals, he will present evidence that these practices are common, and he will discuss what the field can do to change the incentives that encourage these practices.
