Abstract

We reply to Robert Jensen and Emily Oster’s (2014) response to our replication of their QJE paper and Berk Ozler’s recent blog. We first summarize Jensen and Oster’s empirical findings and proceed to briefly explain our own main results. Then we address and engage with the issues raised by and the claims and arguments of JO (2014) and Ozler.
