At the risk of sounding like I am saying “I told you so,” I offer this NY Times correction noted in today’s Wall Street Journal:
An earlier version of this article misstated the findings of a 2010 study on psychopathy in corporations. The study found that 4 percent of a sample of 203 corporate professionals met a clinical threshold for being described as psychopaths, not that 10 percent of people who work on Wall Street are clinical psychopaths. In addition, the study, in the journal Behavioral Sciences and the Law, was not based on a representative sample; the authors of the study say that the 4 percent figure cannot be generalized to the larger population of corporate managers and executives.
Well, hush my mouth. You mean an enemy of capitalism was willing to use bad science to support a position he already held anyway? Say it ain’t so!
