Randomized Control Trials in Policy

“With the best of intention, policy can inflict pain or unnecessary extra cost to people, even thought they are moved with the best intention”. In this set of interviews, Ben Goldacre explores the possibility to apply to policy what has been applied (rather successfully) in medicine: Randomized Control Trials (RCTs).

Ethical concerns, political power loss and embarrassment are all worth the gain of knowledge to administer a population.

Get good quality evidence! Enjoy:
