Toyota’s electronic systems have multiple fail-safe mechanisms to shut off or reduce engine power in the event of a system failure. Extensive testing of this system by Toyota has not found any sign of a malfunction that could lead to unintended acceleration. Here are some notes for the lawyers suing Toyota.

strategy that attempts to meet criteria for adequacy, rather than to identify an optimal solution. A satisficing strategy may often be (near) optimal if the costs of the decision-making process itself, such as the cost of obtaining complete information, are considered in the outcome calculus. Krosnick (1991) refers to the "satisficing" theory, namely optimizing the use of all the cognitive steps that can be distinguished in the question answering process. The word satisfice was coined by Herbert Simon in 1956. He pointed out that human beings lack the cognitive resources to maximize : we usually do not know the ...

Paradox of Choice, The Lowest Price!
Whether we’re buying a pair of jeans, ordering a cup of coffee, selecting a long-distance carrier, applying to college, choosing a doctor, or setting up a 401(k), everyday decisions — both big and small — have become increasingly complex due to the overwhelming abundance of choice with which we are presented.

LAST March, the American Medical Association reported an alarming rate of binge drinking and unprotected sex among college women during spring break. The report was based on a survey of �a random sample� of 644 women and supplied a scientific-sounding �margin of error of +/� 4.00 percent.� Television, columnists and comedians embraced the racy report. The New York Times did not publish the story, but did include some of the data in a chart. The sample, it turned out, was not random. It included only women who volunteered to answer questions � and only a quarter of them had actually ever taken a spring break trip. They hardly ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
