The Tyranny of Numbers.
American Enterprise, v5 n6 p34-41 Nov-Dec 1994
Focuses on political misrule through the use of statistics. It examines the defining of political events in this century and the reasons for the rise of the statistics-oriented, problem-solving state which, it is argued, has had adverse affects on social programs and antipoverty policies and has created a misunderstanding of the prevalence of infant mortality.
