April and May 2022 posts
What was on deck on Jason Collins blog through April and May
A quite stretch for posting on Jason Collins blog, but posts in April and May were:
Explaining base rate neglect: Over the last couple of months I delivered a series of lunchtime seminars at a wealth manager. I botched my explanation of base rate neglect, so wrote this post as a follow up.
Megastudy scepticism: Late last year Katherine Milkman and friends “introduced” us to the megastudy. It landed in Nature with a fair degree of fanfare. My take: a lot to like but “Even in a world of megastudies, we are still in a world of poor theory, questionable generalisability and inadequate statistical power.”
Teaching is over for the semester, so you’ll see an increased flow of posts over the coming month or two.
As always, comments and feedback welcome.
