One who intends to leave others better off for his having existed.


If 65 – 58 = 7, is unemployment higher than the Bureau of Labor Statistics says it is?


Via Calculated Risk

If 5.5% unemployment in 2004

would have been reported as ~12.5% in 1980,

why did some want to change reported unemployment,

and why would some not want to disclose comparative disparities?


If…the Ministry of Plenty forecast a surplus,

and in reality the result was grossly less,

Winston’s job was to change previous versions

so the old version would agree with the new one.


George Orwell


Could some who follow statistical irregularities

take advantage of relative unawareness

prior to collective realization?
