Profits vs integrity: Why we may trust registered clinical trials VoxEU, 16 September 2020

Some years ago, I discovered a short article published in French by Émile Borel in 1938. The article contains a pioneering game-theoretic analysis of parimutuel betting with heterogeneous prior beliefs:

Translation of Émile Borel, Sur le pari mutuel, Comptes Rendus Hebdomadaires des Séances de l’Académie des Sciences, 1938.
