'I will never again think of a model without thinking of O’Neill’s lovely example of the model she uses to select what to cook for dinner for her children' how true:

Pg. 19 "The input to my internal cooking model is the information I have about my family, the ingredients I have on hand or I know are available, and my own energy, time, and ambition. The output is how and what I decide to cook. I
measure the success of a meal by how satisfied my family seems at the end of it, how much they’ve eaten, and how healthy the food was. Seeing how well it is received and how much of it is enjoyed allows me to update my model for the next time I cook. The updates and adjustments make it what statisticians call a “dynamic model.”

Kartellamt übernimmt Verbraucherschutz

FAZ
"DÜSSELDORF, 12. Juni. Nach dem Inkrafttreten des reformierten Wettbewerbsgesetzes baut das Bundeskartellamt eine Abteilung für den Verbraucherschutz auf. Sie soll vor allem im Internet für den Datenschutz und einen lauteren Wettbewerb sorgen. Für die zusätzlichen Aufgaben sind noch keine Stellen bewilligt, so dass die neue Abteilung anfangs mit einer Handvoll Beamten auskommen muss. Geleitet wird sie von Carsten Becker, bisher verantwortlich für die Energie- und Mineralölwirtschaft. Das wichtigste Instrument sind Sektoruntersuchungen, die bei begründetem Verdacht auf Verstöße eingeleitet werden können. Damit durchleuchtet das Kartellamt die Marktbedingungen, um eine Grundlage für ein konkretes Eingreifen zu gewinnen. Gerade in der Internetwirtschaft gebe es Fälle, in denen Unternehmen durch eine einzige rechtswidrige Maßnahme Millionen Verbrauchern auf einmal schaden können. Hier sei es sinnvoll, den vorwiegend privatrechtlich organisierten Verbraucherschutz zu unterstützen"
