    •  case-fatality ratio (0+ / 0-)

      Which is greater?

      (gunshot deaths) / (people hit by gunshots)
      or
      (car wreck deaths) / (people in auto accidents)
      Seriously, I don't know the answer. Whichever ratio is higher is the more dangerous.

      PS. The denominator of the latter fraction includes fender benders, just as the former fraction's denominator includes shrapnel wounds and minor "winged" skin wounds.

      Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration. -- K.Marx A.Lincoln
