Abstract

The present response, as well as previ- ous debates regarding the late-equals- large hypothesis [e.g. in Finlay et al., 2001, and responses therein], suggests as a main issue of debate the information content in a regression analysis. To Finlay et al. a high correlation suggests a strikingly conserva- tive pattern, which is regularly invoked in the 15-year corpus of work that they refer to (and which I briefly reviewed). To oth- ers, the variation behind even a very good fit (which is easily overlooked when the data are – perfectly appropriately – log transformed) does not allow this conclu- sion [de Winter and Oxnard, 2001; Barton, 2007].
