Business and Sports: Competition Misunderstood

One of the oldest pages at Portico is this one, about the strange folly of talking about business as though it had something in common with sports. Would that they did! - as I'm sure businessmen would think, if they thought. In fact, the comparison between business and sports, the overlay of sports metaphors on business situations, is specious, a real case of "whited sepulchre."

What do you think?
