Good example from NYT on how to tackle the argument essay

Post Mon Nov 05, 2007 9:48 pm
Just thought I'd share this article which, though probably not written with the thought of GMAT test-takers in mind, provides a very good example on how to come up with faulty assumptions for the Analysis of an Argument Essay.

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/04/business/04view.html?em&ex=1194498000&en=684be52ee2a1cbc3&ei=5087%0A

Note how Mr Mankiw takes a generalization and comes up with a myriad other reasons for the evidence presented.
