How Benford's Law Shows the Greeks Were Cheating
Specifically, Benford’s Law has something to say about how many times the digits 1 to 9 should be the leading digit of the numbers in your set. So, items costing £4.00, £412.99, and £4,999.00 all start with the digit 4, and you’d expect around 10% of your set to start with a 4.And when people make up 'random' numbers, they almost never do it in a way that follows Benford's Law. In fact I believe it's standard for auditors to check transactions against Benford's Law to see if they've been fiddled with by humans. And unshockingly it turns out that all the economic figures used by Greece to get admitted into the EU also fail Benford's Law.
