Visual Critique #2: Reality is what You make of it!

Excel-Teaser-1

Microsoft suggests (fig.1) that company growth is always exponential. Must be true, because they suggest to always use “an exponential chart”. (No, they don’t mean a chart with exponential scale.) The article itself hints that there may be some exceptions – but I find it highly dangerous to write this in a “classroom-style book” on financial analysis. Next time someone comes at me with an exponential chart, I won’t believe him.
