Leaf Me Alone
Megan McArdle feels vehicles like the Nissan Leaf and the Chevy Volt could be a "colossal misjudgment". The sales of these vehicles have been down over the last month. Now gas prices are rising. If they can't sell well in this environment, they're "green elephants".
Does Megan know we're in a recession? Car sales, overall, are down.
Sometimes people really do twist the data to (incorrectly) validate their views.
