Big data - are we making a big mistake

I came across an interesting article by Tim Harford in FT Magazine.   This article in in line of several posts I have made on this Blog, which express some skeptics on the ability of merely looking at statistical correlation in the past to create "big insights". Harford brings some examples for that and concludes that there are some naive believes around the big data hypes.   I'll keep writing more insights about this topic.
