    Good content tends to gain links. Links bring PR.

    We can't -- but Google can -- and does.

    That is the original paper that Larry and Sergey did while students at Stanford. The PR calculation is described in it.

    There's also a million other explanations of PR.

    I'm still trying to find a logical correlation between those two sentences.

    I think I'll go ask the Easter Bunny for help.

    It would lower the overall PageRank of their site.

    I can't comment on pagerank, but on the subject of outbound links in serps, I have concrete proof that linking to another site can actually help your rankings.

    On one of my pages I have a link to another site, and the keyword is in the site's URL, my anchor text doesn't mention the keyword in the same form as the link URL yet I rank on the first page for the keyword. In fact the serp shows my description as being the anchor text and some of the surrounding text.

    I think the reason this works for me is possibly because the keyword only has a few results anyway, and perhaps in a more competitive keyword I wouldn't rank at all.
