Another 180 on Piketty

Since we are looking at models of how to respond to one's own errors:

Another 180 on Piketty's Measurement: ...yes, I'm doing another 180. It seems clear that the bulk of the evidence suggests that the FT, not Piketty, is guilty of sloppiness. Piketty's response is convincing, and all-told, his book (with its thoughtful discussion, meticulous footnotes, detailed online technical appendix, freely-available datasets, etc. -- see his fine website) remains a model of careful social-science measurement as reported for a lay audience. ...

Honorable and impressive. Waiting for Chris Giles to act as a model...
