    From the paper, there's pretty good evidence for both.

    Leaving the (alphabetically) first five countries out of the data? Probably incompetence.

    Weighting every period of growth, regardless of the number of years it occurred over, as one data point? That's either fraud or genius. Since their original paper couldn't be bothered to mention the weighting, I'm voting for fraud.
