Vacation!

Sorry guys, no stats this week. The fiancé and I are on a much-needed break from the hectic Sacramento scene. In the meantime, please indulge yourself with a little summer reading. I'm finding that nothing complements an island holiday like a discussion on the impact of uncertainty and the fallacies of predictive economics, which is why I'm reading "The Black Swan" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. To get the flavor of the type of discussion you'll encounter in this book, check out this timely post and follow-on discussion on Calculated Risk where Tanta demonstrates how the narrative fallacy can trap even the most astute economists.

I told you, I'm on vacation! :)
