Our taste for vanity metrics starts early. Take schools, in which most students receive grades. Does an “A” reflect the promise of a student’s future performance or actually show who's better at studying? On its own, doesn’t a “B” just signal “work harder” rather than “work smarter?” Grades ca...  ...Read more
