What is GOODHART’S LAW

Professor Charles Goodhart introduced this theory. Originally applied to the stability of economic spending, it now points out the problem of assigning value to a specific variable to be used as an indicator. It states that when a measure’s value becomes a target, the measure value can no longer be used as a measure.
