Their work underlines the fact that exactly what conclusions about one population can be supported by information about another depends on exactly what causal and probabilistic facts they have in common. Text is accurate up to this point, but then it changes gears and states: as Muller (2015) notes, this, like the problem with simple re weighting, takes us back to the situation that RCTs are designed to avoid, where we need to start from a complete and correct specification of the causal structure.
