Mere coincidence?

Nick, should I read anything into the near-simultaneous creation of this article along with several articles on Schools of Economics? :-) Howard C. Berkowitz 11:13, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

What articles? Nick Gardner 14:50, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
Manchester, London, Chicago... Howard C. Berkowitz 14:59, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
Your point is well taken. We economists have much to answer for. When some of them met the Queen of England, she asked them about the recession:
"If it was so big, how is it that you didn't see it coming?"

Rough first draft

This was put together at a busy time as my "branching out" contribution to the time-limited User:Chris_Key/Sandbox/Alphabet_Article_Drive. That is my excuse for lumbering into fields in which I am unqualified, and my excuse for failing to use more than a small fraction of the available material. I shall leave it shortly with a challenge to better qualified authors to improve it - or upon it! Nick Gardner 16:58, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

You now have me fascinated to wonder if this is branching out because
  1. Economists don't have misteaks
  2. Economists don't know how to analyze their urrors
Other related articles: failure (engineering), cognitive traps for intelligence analysis and medical error. One of these days, I should start on root cause analysis. See chicken-based technologies for a few mistakes. Howard C. Berkowitz 18:07, 14 March 2011 (UTC)
