The p-value Debate
A must for anyone interested in statistics and/or econometrics
Farewell symposium of Dr. A.F. (Aart) de Vos for which he wrote:
'How to use the p-value in making decision'

The classical significance test reinterpreted
A bridge between Bayesians and frequentists
With an all-star set of speakers (key phrases between brackets)

- Prof. J.M. (Jose) Bernardo (Objective Bayesian Hypothesis testing)
- Prof. A. (Tony) O’Hagan (Subjective Bayes, 'no more p-values')
- Prof. P.D. (Peter) Grünwald (Bayes Factors and Truth Finding)
