The Death Penalty Once More

(p.264) Chapter 32 Reply
The Economists' Voice

Paul H. Rubin

Columbia University Press

This chapter presents Rubin's response to John Donohue and Justin Wolfers, that is, he attempts to clear up the misimpression that Donohue and Wolfers created in their article implying that they have been unable to reproduce the results of Rubin et al. To the contrary, and as they conceded in their article in the Stanford Law Review: “Dezhbakhsh, Rubin, and Shepherd generously shared their data and code, and Joanna Shepherd assisted our efforts, enabling us to perfectly replicate all of their results”. Rubin further states that the vast majority of studies, not just his paper, find that capital punishment has a deterrent effect.
