Steven Meyer graduated as a theoretical physicist back in prehistoric times when you had to do calculations using slide-rules and log tables. Never mind computers. He thought small hand-held calculators were leading-edge technology. He has spent most of his life as a statistician upsetting people with his conclusions.
