SCORPIO: July 10-16


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In 2010, two Harvard economics professors wrote a paper that became a crucial piece of evidence for the global austerity movement. Politicians used it to justify their assertion that the best way to cure long-running financial ills is for governments to spend less money. Oddly, no one actually studied the paper to see if it was based on accurate data until April 2013. Then Thomas Herndon, a 28-year-old University of Massachusetts Ph.D. student, dived in and discovered fundamental mistakes largely discrediting the conclusions. You have a similar mojo going. Through clear thinking and honest inquiry, you can get at truths everyone else missed.
