Goodhart's Law
"When a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure."
Or:
"As soon as the government attempts to regulate any particular set of financial assets, these become unreliable as indicators of economic trends."

There are obvious implications in the measurement of the economy, but this is also evident in business behavior. There are countless managers and supervisors in almost every company on earth shooting for specific metrics that are being used to measure success.
