Vergara transcripts

I probably won't be getting back to to the Vergara Case for a while -- I pretty much had my say in this Monkey Cage piece -- but I just came across the transcripts for the trial. The section linked to here includes testimony from Raj Chetty.

Chetty has gotten in the habit of making very bold causal and predictive statements based on interesting but not conclusive studies. Before reading through all of his testimony (which I haven't done myself -- it's not that relevant to the threads I'm pursuing), I would advise checking out what Bruce Baker of Rutgers had to say about the original research.
