    you DO publish the raw data. I totally agree that there is no basic rule of science because different studies vary. And your points about not guaranteeing accuracy are well-taken. But when using prior historical data in economic studies, you absolutely include either the data or specific references where the data can be found.

    For that reason, the journal that published this is as much at fault as anyone. Undoubtedly, the authors' reputations contributed to how that went down.
