about this item

Economists set out the philosophical foundations, research strategy, research methods, data collection and applications of critical realism, an approach to economics that rejects deductive and non-causal forms of theorizing and questions the sole use of quantitative statistical methods for evaluating theories. Their topics include critical realism as a social ontology for economics, qualitative and ethnographic methods in economics, challenges and issues in studying low-income households, a mixed methods approach to investigating the employment decisions of aged care workers in Australia, and a data triangulation approach to understanding the behavior of small landholders in Bulgaria.
