A powerful new paper, “This is a panacea” by Swift, J., has broken new ground in the field of development and social science research. A paper like no other. I’ve obtained an advance copy of the Abstract, below…
This is a panacea. Whilst recent discussion has described a complex series of inter-relationships, our research concludes that it is much simpler and more linear, with only one cause and very easy attribution.
We found no shortage of data, and no need for further disaggregation. There is no need for further research. The time we spent investigating it was excessive.
This is the magic bullet. Interestingly, it works it every context and one size fits all, with no nuance.
We encountered only identical perspectives. Debate, up to now quite fierce, will cease raging.
Readers interested in further reading on this topic would be wasting their time on the bibliography which is necessarily much too long for reasons of space.
