I want to write a Term paper that is an extension of a seminal paper in Economics. Right now I only want a two page proposal for that paper that includes the research question, econometric technique and the model that will be used for the final paper. The technique should be either instrumental variable or difference in difference the latter preferred. Also, the proposal should state clearly the kind of data ,that will be used and cite and make reference to the data source .
Well-designed, ‘uncontroversial’ empirical strategy
Extend the analysis with more recent data, other variables (e.g. heterogeneous effects), other identification strategies, additional methods (e.g. add matching), additional tests (including placebos, statistical difference between coefficients).
Need ready-to-go data, publicly available either through a website, a colleague, or the author(s)
