Should They? https://ejpe.org/journal/article/view/666 <p>In her recent book, <em>Faces of Inequality </em>(2020), Moreau aims at developing a normative account of discrimination that is guided by the main features of anti-discrimination law. The critical comment argues against this methodology, indicating that due to indeterminacy relative to their underlying normative principles, central anti-discrimination norms cannot fulfill this guiding role. Further, using the content of such norms to guide ethical discussions is likely to be misleading, as it reflects evidentiary considerations that are unique to the legal context. The critical comment’s claims are developed based on a close examination of indirect discrimination (or disparate impact) norms, and, as such, have wider implications for ongoing moral and political debates that are heavily influenced by the content of these norms.</p> Rona Dinur Copyright (c) 2022 Rona Dinur https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-11-06 2022-11-06 15 2 –aa –aa 10.23941/ejpe.v15i2.666 Tinbergen on the Theory and Policy of Economic Development https://ejpe.org/journal/article/view/708 <p>As part of a book symposium on Erwin Dekker's <em>Jan Tinbergen (1903–1994) and the Rise of Economic Expertise</em> (2021), Mauro Boianovsky reflects on Tinbergen's 'uniqueness' among development economists in the post-war era.</p> Mauro Boianovsky Copyright (c) 2022 Mauro Boianovsky https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-11-24 2022-11-24 15 2 –aa –aa 10.23941/ejpe.v15i2.708 Probability and Statistics in the Tinbergen-Keynes Debates https://ejpe.org/journal/article/view/710 <p class="p1">As part of a book symposium on Erwin Dekker's <em>Jan Tinbergen (1903–1994) and the Rise of Economic Expertise</em> (2021), William Peden reflects on shared views on the objectivity and nature of statistics between Tinbergen and Keynes underlying the Tinbergen-Keynes debates.</p> William Peden Copyright (c) 2022 William Peden https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-11-30 2022-11-30 15 2 –aa –aa 10.23941/ejpe.v15i2.710 Jan Tinbergen’s Fallacy https://ejpe.org/journal/article/view/711 <p class="p1">As part of a book symposium on Erwin Dekker's&nbsp;<em>Jan Tinbergen (1903–1994) and the Rise of Economic Expertise</em> (2021), Michele Alacevich reflects on Tinbergen's vision of economic expertise as a-political.</p> Michele Alacevich Copyright (c) 2022 Michele Alacevich https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-11-30 2022-11-30 15 2 –aa –aa 10.23941/ejpe.v15i2.711 Review of Claudia Goldin's Career and Family: Women’s Century-Long Journey toward Equity.
