"Why The Dollar Is Giving Way" (News: Analysis & Commentary, Dec. 6, 2004)
"Why the dollar is giving way" (News: Analysis & Commentary, Dec. 6) incorrectly identified Nouriel Roubini as a professor at Columbia University. He's at New York University's Stern School of Business. "Why consumers hate mergers" (The Corporation, Dec. 6) incorrectly stated the cost to consumers of bank mergers. It should have said that if each household affected by such a merger spent an hour dealing with the aftereffects of the merger, the total value of that time at the overall average wage rate would be roughly $900 million. Because of a production error, the final sentence in "Cholesterol: The bigger the better" (Personal Business, Dec. 13, Print Edition) was cut short. The complete sentence reads: "When it comes to cholesterol, a long walk beats a short run."
