Boudreaux On Elephants, Boudreaux On Statistics

Don Boudreaux and his wife Karol Boudreaux both published excellent articles in the past week that are worth taking a look at.

Don wrote for the Christian Science Monitor, succinctly describing a common mistake made in interpreting data concerning averages.

Karol wrote for the The Nation, showing how lifting the ban on hunting elephants can actually increase the elephant population. (I've made a similar point last week if you are in search for more free market environmentalism.)
