WHAT CAN WE EXPECT THE SOCIAL SCIENCES TO DO? THE CONTROVERSY OVER THE GROWTH OF MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME IN THE USA SINCE THE LATE 1970S AS AN EXAMPLE

Today's Buggy Topic

The topic, dealt with by three lengthy buggy posts left in a thread at Economist's View, ranges more widely than the subject-title above suggests.  Most buggy followers will likely find the long buggy analysis of the debate about American median-household income-growth since the late 1970s the most interesting parts of the buggy posts, though anyone interested in the social sciences --- and above all, what we can legitimately expect them to do compared to the natural sciences --- will, let us hope, find all three buggy posts informative . . . along with the exchanges there with other posters.
