The price of oil and the state of the world economy: using terrorism as the instrumental variable
Natalie Chen, Liam Graham, Andrew J Oswald, 17 August 2008
There is both casual and formal evidence from the post-war period that abrupt movements in the price of oil have significant effects on the macroeconomy, as neoclassical economic theory would predict.

Do we know enough about terrorism?
Fernanda Llussá, José A. Tavares , 10 December 2007

Think of fear of terrorism as perfectly rational and well understood. If you think like this, you may gain some comfort from the fact that many people think like you. But you (and they) are wrong.
