Things related to the economy, and statistics

The New York Times has this article about the things that are believed to be correlated to economic trends. Surely some statistician must be having a field day with this.

Wait. There is one. William M. Briggs, one of the associate editors at Monthly Weather Review offers his opinions on all things statistical.

Dr. Briggs has a book coming out soon called: Breaking the Law of Averages: Real-Life Probability & Statistics in Plain English.

He also performed an analysis of countries and who the best country was in the Olympics this summer? His conclusion: The Bahamas and Jamaica, who won the most medals per capita.
