From time to time, worthy members of the finance profession in academe prepare lists of the profession's accomplishments. What causes something in finance to appear on such a list is that it is used, either by practitioners or academics. We argue that, although "use" appears to be a very practical way to identify an "accomplishment," it is no such thing. We also contend in this paper that if finance as an academic discipline has as one of its goals the discovery of truth, then it has to change not only the ways in which research is performed, but abo its reward system.
