The Rule of B21

B21 gets a lot of emails from PR and marketing companies wanting to promote their stuff. Mostly I ignore them but occasionally something catches my eye and I will construct a blog post around it. This is one such that caught my eye but for all the wrong reasons ….

It’s a book entitled “The Rule of 72”, no link intended
"As an ex-investment banker who was at the 'eye of the storm' during the financial crisis, author Christopher Taylor believes that Governments around the world will prove as inept in tackling climate change as they were in addressing the causes of the credit crunch."
No fracking shite! This is not only what is known as a statement of the bleedin’ obvious, but is also a glaring example of how investment bankers and consultants want to capture even more of your hard earned cash by selling you something you already know.

Note: The Rule of 72 is, in fact, a well known economic term - see here.

    These "Know-it-Alls" and their numbers should be reported to the Dolphins.
