    I presented empirical studies and now I am avoiding literature? You are avoiding the truth.
    Heathen! Heretic! Econometrics is the one and only true religion, all other disciplines are teachings from a false prophet!

    Haven't you infidels learned that by now?

    This is interesting:

    To qualify this here is the author.
    Experience:

    Mike has studied economics at four different universities in three countries and has taught economics at both the university and community college level.

    Education:

    Mike holds Honors B.A. degrees in Political Science and Economics from the University of Western Ontario, a Masters Degree in Economic Theory from the University of Rochester, and has done graduate work at Queen's University at Kingston. Mike has won a number of academic awards, including a gold medal for Political Science and Economics from the University of Western Ontario for being the top graduating student in his class.

    From Mike Moffatt:

    Economics should not be simply a discussion of arcane diagrams and complicated mathematics. By understanding the principles of economics we can better understand the world around us and make better business, career and life decisions.
    Economics needs to become less enamored with proofs and more enamored with realism.

    And to qualify myself (and show that I am a pack rat) I never get rid of school books.

    Neither interesting or imaginative. You're merely having a tantrum as you cannot dispute the need to utilise hypothesis testing methods. You're merely having a tantrum as these studies correctly isolate gun effects and also allow for numerous robustness tests to ensure empirical bias can be quantified and dismissed. Its all just a little too predictable!

    No Reiver it is you and your one track mind that are the issue. It is people trying to make humans into mathematical models and use their actions as variables that is the issue. Economists are wrong all the time because of the one factor they can not account for. The human.

    Following an evidence-based approach is just rational

    This only shows that you don't know what you're talking about. There has been no reference to mathematical models, except in your unimaginative dodge from your inability to defend your position with valid evidence. There has only been reference to the need to use empirical methodologies capable of isolating gun effects. That isn't economics specific.

    You evidently have no idea how studies are carried out.

    A mathematical model is an abstract model that uses mathematical language to describe the behaviour of a system.

    Regression techniques and curve fitting attempt to find functions that describe the relationship among variables. In effect, they attempt to build mathematical models of a data set. MATLAB matrix operators and functions simplify this task.

    Another concern is serial correlation in the error structure, given that FSS changes only
    slowly over time within counties and that other unmeasured determinants of county crime
    rates may also have jurisdiction-specific trends.

    difference between 1999 and 1980, and the subscripts Q1 and Q4 refer to btop quartileQ

    DlnYQ1 DlnYQ4 = DlnFSSQ1 DlnFSSQ4:

    So you are an illiterate fool by your own reckoning.

    I do. Econometrics isn't that difficult to understand. The best you can go for is a difference between parametric and non-parametric tests (e.g. stochastic frontier versus DEA). However, you've simply been blinded by a warped understanding of economics (even though we're not actually referring to economic models, which typically are used to justify the specification and therefore eliminate the threat of data mining)

    You're still peddling sweet FA

    Nice side step. You have failed and it is here for all to see there are no take backs because you have lost.

    There has been no reference to mathematical models, except in your unimaginative dodge from your inability to defend your position with valid evidence.
    Your empirical study was based off of mathematical models that used humans as variables. You denied it so that evidently means I know more about your study than you do.

    FAIL
