In 2017, the province of Ontario Canada began to conduct a negative income tax experiment. Almost immediately, a group of participants self-organized and called themselves Living Proof. They made themselves available to the press, took on an advocacy role and declared themselves the ultimate arbiters of the success or failure of the experiment.

This paper has a two-fold, historical and systematic aim. The historical aim is to show that the causal wars continue a longstanding methodological debate between deductivists and inductivists the origins of which go back almost to the beginning of modern economics. The bulk of this paper looks at three exemplary case studies from this debate, focusing on a number of methodological issues that have come up again and again over time. The systematic aim is to show that the core issues in this debate centre around a set of genuine epistemic dilemmas that are unlikely to be...
