To me, Gladwell is one of few authors where i can sit down and read his works for hours on end, and I thought i would share one piece with you fellow monkeys. It is about the quarterback problem. More specifically, how any measure we have of determining how well a college qb will fare in the NFL without actually seeing him in NFL conditions.
This got me thinking, with finance so focused on narrowly recruiting from a select few schools, is this really the optimal strategy? Do you think finance recruiters face the same problem as NFL scouts do?
This might just be the non target in me talking though :P
Either way, its a really interesting read and I highly recommend all of his work.
