INSIGHTS: Don’t Count On It! The Perils of Numeracy
John C. Bogle
Volume 1, Number 1, First Quarter 2003
Author John C. Bogle argues that the Information Age has given birth to a worship of hard numbers, and, in turn, the attitude that “If you cannot measure it, it doesn’t matter.” Mr. Bogle disagrees with this syllogism, and offers four “Perils of Numeracy,” detailing the threats that each pose not only to Corporate America, and to investors, but to our society at large.
