preprint description
In the paper we ask how the following two facts are related: (i) a set of correlations has a local, non-conspiratorial separate common causal explanation; (ii) the set satisfies the Bell inequalities. Our answer will be partial: we show that no set of correlations violating the Clauser-Horne inequalities can be given a local, non-conspiratorial separate common causal model if the model is deterministic.
