    No, I didn't. I said, they were only as good as the information put in, and I might not know what you missed. That's different.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    only saying from the early days of computers Garbage in, Garbage out. The formula can be valid but if the input is crap, the answers are useless
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    Yeah, I linked the inputs too. An old tactic of Boo's is to insist, if he cannot counter the evidence, that somewhere out there surely countering evidence exists, and therefore his opponent is wrong.
