    Hm … do you explore why Campbell’s Law is true?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campbell%27s_Law
    Or even Goodhart’s law, which states:
    “Any observed statistical regularity will tend to collapse once pressure is placed upon it for control purposes.”
    (Goodhart’s original 1975 formulation)

    Isn’t this what sociologists call measure reactivity?
