Much of economic literature is based on theory or evidence that has been refuted, and economists may spend years of their lives using long-discredited economics. It is, however, virtually impossible to find these refutations. It is proposed to set up a database of refutations, so that economists can check that the economics they use and the papers they cite, have not been refuted. This will also discourage economists from publishing papers that they know to be bad or carelessly written.
