A rampant blunder in the marketplace is a mix-up between the destination and the journey. A showcase arose with the financial crisis of 2008 and its aftermath: frantic politicians wasted mounds of public funds even as they crippled the financial markets and the real economy.

Wildcat groups such as hedge funds play a growing role in causing or aggravating blowups in the marketplace. This primer exposes the reality behind the illusion of profits.

A universal set of guidelines can serve as the groundwork for progress and prosperity in any domain.
