There is a rising chorus of calls for science to become more reliable, replicable, and reproducible. Many of these demands focus on increasing statistical power by collecting larger sample sizes.

In this talk, I describe why improved statistical power solves many research problems, and what other tools are available to you when a larger sample size does not make sense.
