Christine Benesch recommends “Mostly Harmless Econometrics: An Empiricist's Companion” by Joshua D. Angrist and Jörn-Steffen Pischke


It might be a bit surprising to find an econometrics textbook in a collection of “economic ideas you should remember.” Mostly Harmless Econometrics: An Empiricist’s Companion by Joshua Angrist and Jörn-Steffen Pischke is far more than a textbook. It differs from traditional econometric textbooks because of its catchy title and refreshing language.
