    even taking him at face value, surely having a significant proportion of your workforce in jail is a bit of a competitive disadvantage?

    Not really politics per se, but am I correct in saying that the general consensus on the new 538 is that it's dreadful?

    Pretty much. Vacuous, superfluous treatments of too many topics.

    Yeah, pretty surface from what I saw. More like contrary than illuminating; counters superficial plots by others on a topic (e.g. global warming) with their own superficial plots. If your representation of 'data-driven' looks a lot like others who don't make that claim.....

    I'm also not sure what their science section will offer that the good meta analysis papers don't.

    I think dreadful is probably too far, presumably there'll still be some very good articles on it. But there's so many poor articles online at the moment. Spreading itself too thin.

    Taking Sides

    Silver is blowing it. He’s blowing years of credibility with his target audience with this pissing match. Not because Krugman is some beloved Olympian sage whose comments are above reproach or contest simply by virtue of his status as a sage, but because he’s demonstrably wrong and Krugman is demonstrably right. He’s blowing it, as commenter Walt French at Noah Smith’s blog said, because he seems to think the economics and climate science fields are “populated by the same kind of bloviators and shills he encountered in politics.”
