Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    As noted in Moneyball, the statistics historically used to measure the performance of baseball players don’t adequately separate the players’ performance from other random factors beyond their control.

    It’s taken as unquestioned wisdom that CEOs should be compensated for the value they create for shareholders, but the fact is that’s a useless objective if you haven’t come up with a good way to quantify CEO performance independent of factors beyond their control.
