Thriving on Stupidity
Everyone is ignorant, only on different subjects.
Nine months after the mugging incident, Laura seemed to have recovered from the tragedy. She and I were MBA students at St. Andrews. We had both enrolled in Professor Martin Armstrong’s infamous class for that spring quarter. Taking Professor Armstrong’s decision-making course was considered a privilege for outstanding students. The professor talked at length to each student before deciding whether to add his or her name to the class roster. His seminar, Thriving on Stupidity, would have only fifteen students. The class would be held every weekday for three weeks, either in a classroom at St. Andrews or in the board-rooms of several major corporations.
