  1. yesterday I started reading "Causality..." and today I found this-nice!

    I have a question. Will reading the book equip me with the proper tools to illustrate casual relationships as in "Event E (eg the 2007-2008 crisis) caused variables V1, V2, ...., Vn to alter their course but not so for vars Vn+1 to Vn+m"?
