DeJong and Duggan are two of dumbest smart guys you will ever see. Guys, please keep your crackpot ideas in the ivory tower. Duggan- you know the old line about correlation not equalling causation. DeJong-the incidence rate in the Netherlands is still twice that as SSDI. Foisting all rehab on employers? Get a grip.
