I. Disruption du jour
The modern notion of disruptive innovation does not make the distinction between the effects of innovation in different industries, nor are all so-called "disruptions" equally as valuable. Schumpeter's model of disruptive innovation resembles a power law, while the modern conception of disruptive innovation argues that transformative changes are ubiquitous. Here are some readings on the myth and controversies surrounding the concept:
Lepore, J. The Disruption Machine. New Yorker, June 23 (2014).
* a critique of the "disruption" industry.
Bennett, D. The Innovator's New Clothes: Is Disruption a Failed Model? Bloomberg Businessweek, June 18 (2014).
* perhaps Lepore is right -- disruption for disruption's sake is not a viable model of economic change.
Bennett, D. Clayton Christensen Responds to New Yorker Takedown of 'Disruptive Innovation'. Bloomberg Businessweek, June 20 (2014).
* a rebuttal to the Lepore article from the modern "disruption" guru.

III. Ideonational Skew - Satire = Epistemic Closure?
Statistical conspiracy theory? Here is a link to John Williams' Shadowstats site and (appropriately) three readings [1-3] that critique the overall approach. For example, in one reading, it is suggested that the "shadow" in the Shadowstats name consists of an inappropriate modeling methodology.
