The Reporting Will Change, This Image Doesn’t

Ask any scientist. Today, literally, my comment to a client, was:

I have an accounting degree (U of Chicago, ahem, not the dregs of academia), and if I had to choose between an accountant and a meteorologist to help that person understand asset price movements, this is a slam dunk. I will take the meteorologist every time.

A scientist has seen this picture a million times, sometimes in nightmares prior to a final exam. An accountant might have, maybe, but not in an accounting textbook (that I have read myself, I remind you).
