This podcast focuses on one the most important problems in analytic research - the development of biased analysis by researchers. In the podcast, Kurt first highlights the problem by describing an internal debate among economists regarding their own biases and how it is connected to their research. With this debate as background, Kurt then discuss how actuaries can avoid many of the pitfalls encountered by economists in doing their work - particularly when it applies to the most challenging aspects of public policy. Article from June/July issue of The Actuary.
