Ernst & Young, now known as EY, is one of the ‘big four’ professional services firms, which, according to Wikipedia, handle the vast majority of audits for publicly listed companies. So, given its numerical nous, we couldn’t help but notice a rather ironic multiplication error on the back cover of EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year magazine, Exceptional (which is available here and features Rod Drury on the cover). See if you can find it.
EY’s slogan is ‘creating a better working world’, so perhaps it’s an elaborate scheme aimed at drawing attention to the fact that mathematical prowess is an integral part of business success. Or perhaps it was just a careless art director from a stock footage company.
