I'm not sure that TC's first criticism is fair: the report doesn't seem to say that the jobs associated with compliance are a benefit, just that there are jobs associated with compliance.

Actual EO doesn't mention benefits anyway: http://www.marketwatch.com/story/text-of-executive-order-on-eliminating-rules-2017-01-30

Also, I started a post on this but thought I (of all people) should wait until it's official.

Thanks for posting this! I got some great advice once that it's risky to leave the AERE sessions, but this looks good. Will

A (very good!) Laotian restaurant in DC has an invasive menu (currently featuring snakehead but I recall invasive catfish a while ago). http://www.thipkhao.com/snakehead-menu/

Very interesting article. The process sounds awful though.

What is an " outside, commercial review board?" I have never heard of such a thing. Do the substitute for IRBs?

p.s. Have you considered letting them use the original code, perhaps at the half-way point and after checking with you? In my experience, not everything is documented in the article and the code can really help.

I like the language used in the replication section of the Journal of Applied Econometrics (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1002/(ISSN)1099-1255/homepage/News.html#replication): wide versus narrow replication. Taking the author's data and re-running their models is a narrow replication. Once you start extending, you are conducting a wide replication. I'd also note that if your students pick an article from the JAE's list, they could submit to their replication section.
