Journalists and Maths

Why can’t journalists understand simple maths? Today it’s the turn of the Daily Mail to get it spectacularly wrong.

The worthless degrees that add nothing to your pay

Graduates with degrees in accountancy will earn almost double in their lifetime than their counterparts with an arts degree, research suggests.

But accountancy graduates gained the most financially, earning up to 40 per cent more than arts graduates.

“40 per cent” more isn’t quite the same as “almost double”.
