Kaiser,

I fear you may have posted the wrong (old ?) link for Dean Baker's blog --- the current one lives at http://feeds.feedburner.com/beat_the_press

Cheers, Dirk

That's the quickest and clearest explanation of the Monty Hall problem I've ever read.

Hi, I am from South Africa.

Your first point: "Are there cultural differences in the level of statistical thinking? Are people in certain countries more likely to do better at statistical thinking than others?" is a really interesting thought and point. Is it perhaps rather a question of cultural thinking rather than statistical thinking? South Africa is an interesting country especially with its diverse cultures.

You have got me thinking about this, and I thank you for that!
