Brian Romanchuk — Lessons from Piketty and Reinhart & Rogoff

People were quick to draw parallels between the data problems of Thomas Piketty and those faced by Reinhart and Rogoff. I think there are a few lessons that can be drawn from these episodes, even though the problems with Piketty’s data appear much less serious. Since the details of the wealth distribution is not a priority research topic for me, I will not comment on the details of Piketty's alleged errors. Instead my observations here are more about methodology.
