griped posted about the need to get the economics back into papers that the authors characterize as "microeconometrics". Although I was venting (just a little!) about the "disconnect" that we so often see, between the theory section and the empirical section, in so many of the papers in this category, I also commented that there are plenty of papers out there that avoid this disconnect. I just wish there were more of them!
In response to one of the comments of that post, I gave just one such example, and afterwards I thought that although my choice was a good one, it was somewhat dated. So, on a more positive note, what about some recent papers that exemplify what I'm looking for, and what I'd like to see more of?
