Abstract

Markus (2021) argues that the causal modeling frameworks of Pearl and Rubin are not "strongly equivalent", in the sense of saying "the same thing in different ways". Here I rebut Markus' arguments against strong equivalence. The differences between the frameworks are best illuminated not by appeal to their causal semantics, but rather reflect pragmatic modeling choices.
