Huh, I Never Posted The Definition of "Saroff's Rule"

While I post occasionally about what I call "Saroff's Rule," I realized that I have never posted the definition explicitly, at least not in a post of its own, so here goes:
If a financial transaction is complex enough to require that a news organization use a cartoon to explain it, its purpose is to deceive.
So, there you have it.

And sometimes the person being deceived is the person who created it.
