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


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.
