John managed earlier today to post an 842 word rant (don't make John angry, you wouldn't like him when he's angry) over the ridiculousness and arbitrariness of seemingly intelligent researchers choosing choice experiments over contingent valuation based on...well...the ridulous and arbitrary (and wrong) assumption that choice experiments somehow magically avoid the perceived woes of contingent valuation. I'm not sure I can put it any better than John did, and that's really not my point here. My point is that John managed to coherently rant for 842 words without citing or linking to this outstanding piece in the December 2013 issue of the journal Applied Economic Perspectives and Policy**.
