I read in a couple of working papers where the authors claim that they
"obtain all information presented to the agent", therefore they should
be able to claim causality using a simple OLS. I certainly sympathize
because IVs are hard to come by, but is this a valid argument? Have
you seen similar arguments made in published papers?

Many thanks for any reference you can point me to.
