Flu Models Wrong

Yet another example of models being wide of the mark. In the NYTimes a look at the models done for the flu and how poorly they have performed. As a person who has constructed models for many years this adds further concern to how seemingly sophisticated models can influence our behaviors. And when models do not match our expectations, the results are spun away. Big warning.
