Andrew Gelman writes: This is a whole class of social science research! The Granovetter Model, Lyapunov Functions, Markov Processes, etc…. None of these really give us inferential power – that is, the spectrum of ability to make inference – they just help us refine the logic of our assumptions. We won’t know if our model […]
