Canada's Jobless Numbers Questioned: Toronto Created <i>How</i> Many Jobs?

“What numbers did Will Dunning provide? Or was he just speculating?”

Allan Beveridge on Sep 9, 2013 at 17:18:29

“Again, I doubt he was speculating. Chief economists are not given to flights of fancy. The reporter should have asked him for more detail, he may have even been given some but excluded it from the article because he had no clue about what Dunning was trying to explain to him.”

“The trick is to separate the noise from the data. There is a lot of noise in these data. Reminiscent of Homer Simpson stepping on the scale. Wohoo, dooo, wohoo, dooo ......
The financial services folks make a lot of money off that noise, so they promote it as significant.”

“". Our economy is not doing well"

Yet, we are still some of the richest, healthiest, most spoiled people in human history. Life is good, try enjoying it. Instead of complaining about my opinion, pick up the phone and call a loved one. Happiness comes from within.”

“I'm not denying any of that - and I do.

Despite the complaints, I am on the whole a very happy person.”

“""COOK" the books at Statscan "

That's quite an accusation. Any evidence? What are your employment numbers for the month?”

“"“The data for Toronto suggests that employment grew by 1.5 per cent in just one month,” he said in an email to HuffPost. “If that was correct, it would be equivalent to 19 per cent per year. Employment just does not grow that quickly.”"

Nonsense. Even if there was one exceptional month there is no basis for extrapolating it to the whole year. That's just silly talk.”

“"you've just proven your conclusion about video game violence causing real life violence is an urban legend... " No I said your claim about it being an urban legend was a lie.  What a fool.”

“LOL.  It's irrelevant to the study.  Nobody claimed correlation is causation.  Meta-analysis are valid statistical analysis.”

rolor on Sep 9, 2013 at 13:18:18

“Wrong. The difference between correllation and causation is crucial to EVERY scientific study attempting to ascertain effects....  try a remedial science course because you only prove that ignorance while hurling nonsense like this last post of yours.”

“Your lie about the urban legend is the only thing we've debunked.”

rolor on Sep 7, 2013 at 16:17:04

“lol.... you've just proven your conclusion about video game violence causing real life violence is an urban legend... and calling a belief an urban legend isn't a lie when evidence doesn't support that conclusion... but, it is a lie when one ignores the fact that one single study, even if it were not as badly flawed as the one you cited, would still not be definitive proof... heck, even the fact that you don't understand or are unfamiliar with "correllation is not causation" is proof you have no clue what you're talking about but your persistence does prove that Duning-Krueger are correct in their theory about human behaviour.”

“No, you said, " If you're not willing to be specific enough as to reference the specific study conducted and evaluate that, then you're merely proving you're not interested in anything other than forwarding your urban myth."  You said the specific study was a myth.  You were wrong.  Admit it rather than lying about your own words.”

“Funny how you've changed your accusation from "the study didn't exist" to what it is now.... shall I expect you to invent yet another fabricated accusation of something you're guilty of doing?”

“Funny... but where in that or anything else I posted did I actually say, "the study doesn't exist"....?

oh... right... nowhere outside your lying imagination.”

“how typical of a disingenuous mind to resort to projection... apparently, you think providing one citation to a debunked study somehow constitutes referencing more than one source.... and even more pitiably so, you apparently believe your projection is somehow convincing... on the strength of what?... your already invalid word?”

“ya... I'm not surprised to see you continue to dodge criticisms of a study after going to such lengths as you have to avoid posting a cite to begin with. I'm sure you consider such a response as the equivalent of posting something of substance in an argument... it would be consistent with the rest of your efforts thus far.”

rolor on Sep 6, 2013 at 20:02:09

“Reading articles is a good way to learn things... and a really good way to learn things that aren't intended to serve an existing bias is to read articles from a variety of sources... you know... just to be sure that one doesn't base one's self-serving conclusions on only information which fits a bias while dismissing information which contradicts that bias.”
