Because genotype is not modifiable by disease, a genetic instrument can be used as an model for an exposure, and "Mendelian randomization generates unbiased, unconfounded effect estimates that are sometimes taken as evidence of a causal role," Jon White, PhD, of University College London and his coinvestigators explained.
But if these statutes do not impact the takeover threat, or if (re-)incorporation decisions render a firm's exposure to them endogenous, or if the firms incorporated in states that never adopted an ATS are not really comprable to those incorporated in states that did adopt ATSs, the single best source of unconfounded evidence for how the takeover threat affects real behavior becomes useless.
