The social experiment market
Social experiments involve assessing different policy interventions such as negative income taxes. Economists have played a major role in designing such experiments, and justified them in analytical terms.

Any growth in the market for social experiments is likely to come from economists, though economists tend not to use data available as a result of social experiments.
