David Rohde - Causal Inference is (Bayesian) Inference - A beautifully simple idea that not everyone accepts
It is often argued that causal inference is a step that follows probabilistic estimation in a two step procedure, with a separate statistical estimation and causal inference step and each step is governed by its own principles. I have argued to the contrary that Bayesian decision theory is perfectly adequate to do causal inference in a single step using nothing more than Bayesian conditioning. If true this formulation greatly simplifies causal inference. I outline this beautifully simple idea and discuss why some object to it.
