skip, what I meant was that if you open up an online store on a new continent you could accidentally fuck yourself if there's runaway demand.  see, for example, the dayton + wings and horns service boot disaster.

I get what you're saying, but at the same time Uniqlo is already a huge entity that has sourcing, procurement, and distribution capabilities pretty much equal to almost any major apparel retailer in the world.

it's also different from the Dayton situation in that Uniqlo goods don't require the degree of craftsmanship that the later Dayton boots were sorely missing from the demand surge

Actually, No. Their initial US forays failed.

i just wanted to point out that translating any concept from one culture to another is far from trivial.

I don't think that Fuuma would say that all quantitative modeling is stupid, but it's certainly worth nothing that such models generally require an expert user to properly apply them and properly intepret the results and uncertainties. It's also worth nothing that the more trivial the problem, the better models generally perform, which means that for very difficult, complex problems, a model is often as good as a shot in the dark. Why do you think companies adjust their growth and revenues projections constantly? Why do you think that companies fail in spectacular fashion, on a regular basis? The old saying "There are liars, damn liars, and then there are statisticians (or more accurately, data scientists)", is not a bad one to remember.

Also, greed can get in the way of reason. For example, it should have been foreseen that distributed risk does not mean that all risk therefore becomes infinitesimally small, but when people are making money hand over fist, all the blood streaming to the phallus makes for people to think.

Taking another shot at introducing this idea:

I think there should be something like this for SWD. I would start the thread, but whoever is the OP, I think, should have some kind of intuition for the subject, and be able to organize it in the way David has. I'm not that person.

It would be a useful thread, however, and people like me could learn a lot from it.

Note, I realize that given the diversity of SWD, this kind of thread could become impossibly hard to manage. But I feel like taking a shot at it would be worthwhile.
