Are economic impact assessments needed?

What is the use of testing economic policies without assessing their impact? How do we know if a cost-effective solution is truly a solution without testing it and measuring the results before launching it on a large scale? Economic policies must be tested but also evaluated, just as it is done in science, with medicines. Once again, Cátia Baptista responds to Hugo Van Der Ding's curiosity and talks about her field experience, reporting on studies whose results are surprising.
