… according to this recent paper published by Anna Case and Christina Paxson (new window). Thanks to the chaps over at Freakonomics (new window) for bringing this to my attention in their recent blog post (new window).
You really do have to love the internet for bringing little gems like this to one’s attention. I think I’m going to carry a copy of this paper with me wherever I go!
Ahh, come on, argue with me shorty, go on, argue… 🙂
