That's a bit like saying everyone who weighs 90kg is fat. That might be true of a 1.6m tall pastry chef, it probably isn't true of a 1.9m rugby player.This strikes me as a flawed (floored?) analogy. Debt could be viewed as analogous to weight, but surely a debt to earnings ratio (which is what Mr Wilding is taking aim at) is more analogous to…

And there's the agency problem in a nutshell. RNSs should be presented in a way that works best for the shareholders - you know, the people that actually own the business.
