Around the Traps 16/8/13

It is time for Around the Traps.

Interesting week yet again. David Giles has a great linked article on elementary statistics which is a must read so we do not get into bad habits. do not forget Kaiser Fong or Good Stats Bad Stats for easy to understand statistics articles. There are debates over Milton Friedman and the Pigou effect as well.
Ken Parish has  thoughtful articles on the refugee debate in Australia.
It is all happening.

wow Noah Smith is taking a break BUT has some people writing in his place

no Refereeing and Cricket doesn't start until 14/9 so I can update all week-end.
