This past Sunday's New York Times Book Review had a review and excerpt of an interesting new book entitled Proofiness. It is sort of a goofy title, I admit; however, the premise is intriguing. The author describes how people. politicians, and corporations use false numbers and statistics to confuse, obfuscate, and flat out lie. He asserts that when you attached a number to a false or misleading statement, that statement gains a certain amount of credibility. This is all the more reason to educate yourself so you can rely upon your own numbers rather than somebody elses.
My goal is to use numbers and facts to illuminate the wild world of personal finance.
