Bom para pensar
Yesterday, I asked readers to consider the relative merits of aggregate v. individual level analysis. Regardless of the empirical approach, our analyses must be framed by theories about individual behavior. To the extent that we are concerned about developing an understanding of the choices of either individuals or organizations, we need to make certain explicit assumptions about what motivates choices.
Interestingly enough, it is here where I find most of our empirical work to be especially lacking. Despite our ability to generate a great many interesting empirical insights, we seem not to be as concerned as scholars in other disciplines with laying the building blocks that support our expectations.
Nada como um pouco de seriedade.
