– Article summary –

Go to a reputable business news outlet: Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal are a few that are good. Find an article that is not only focused on a topic that you feel is relevant to business but also relies on statistics.  Post a short summary (200-300 words), the citation, and either link to the article or attach a file to your post. Then explain the role of statistics in the article, and if the article would be as powerful/impactful/interesting if the statistics were not there.
