What is the Question?

Our friends at Marginal Revolution make fun of those who are calling for India to produce safer cars.  But if the alternative is riding a motorcycle, even "unsafe" cars can save lives.

This leads to one of my favorite maxims, If you start by looking at the numbers, you will always get confused, e.g.,
...cars made for the Indian market .., all with no airbags—a rating of zero out of five stars for adult safety…

But if you start with a question, "how do we save lives in India?" you will never get confused.
