I'll add this because I just read it, it is about randomized trials, and development, though the trials themselves involved mice:

The microbiome man, it's everywhere.

"Ethics" is what lawyers have instead of morals.

Ethic is what older people with tenure have to prevent younger people doing exciting research that might challenge them for jobs.

Nice work Albert, but did you consult with all the Third World stakeholders before deciding arbitrarily to privilege the speed of light?

Yes, let's be guinea pigs

Interesting that they have no one who actually does field experiments. Where is John List or Esther Duflo?
