The purpose of this post is to plot where some (there is way too many to do them all) different investment measures align on the Peak Paradox model. It is not to explain in detail what all the measures means and their corresponding strength and weaknesses. This is a good article if you want the latter for the purely financial ones.
The observation is that we have not developed with any level of sophistication the same ability to measure or report on anything outside of finance, which we call “hard.” By calling other important aspects of a decision “soft”, we have framed them as less important and harder to agree on.
How can you know where you are if you don't have a reliable measure of your direction or achievement (performance) on some scale?
