Dont blame Excel. Those people were running a scam. And from my experience with people who run banks, its actually not even a little bit out of the ordinary to have completely bullshit calculations spitting out numbers that look good.

The problem is that economics is not a science, and finances are designed to enable power plays. We need to apply real science and technology to problems rather than letting a bunch of suits run around scamming everyone.
