The cover of the current issue of Bloomberg Businessweek
offers a vivid picture.
A line graph shows a thick, healthy arrow pointing upward, labeled “perception.” Another, much thinner arrow droops. It’s labeled “reality.” Both arrows are coming out of the fly of a suit-clad man’s pants. A headline reads, “The Hedge Fund Myth.”
asked Bloomberg spokeswoman Rachel Nagler about whether the phallic imagery of the cover was intentional, she was somewhat coy: “Could be up to the reader to decide…but we do take great care to be very precise when creating our covers.”
