Misinformation Paradox: Is it or just a stupid question?

After interviewing 21,000 executives from 21,000 companies, 100% of the candidates corroborated that 50% of all the data shared publicly is to keep an upbeat public mood towards the global state of affairs. Therefore, we have come to this realization that half of the statistical data shared with global populace is fudged. In other words, there is always a deep gorge between the fact and the numbers presented.

The above statement is in itself a paradox. While it claims that 50% of the world’s data is fudged. But it also doesn’t provide clarity that if the data presented above is fudged or not. Therefore, the aforementioned claim can be true and false at once. The answer will remain unfounded because the task to seek authenticity is greater than the claim in itself.

A Sales Professional Moral Dilemma

A morally ethical sales professional haven’t achieved his/her sales quota, risking his/her job. Thereby, putting his/her mortgage payments at risk. A customer who is also a neighbor of the sales professional walks upto to him/her to conclude his/her purchase. The customer once shared his/her dream of buying a house with the sales professional cum neighbor. The sales professional notices that the customer is low on credit, which means that the item purchased by the customer is more than his/her wallet-size. The customer opts for credit to conclude the purchase. By doing this, the credit scores of the customer would dip down to the lowest level, thereby, disbarring the customer to seek a home loan in the near future.

Would it be the sales professional’s fiduciary responsibility to close the sale or inform the customer cum neighbor about his/her credit score which would impact his/her ability to secure the dream house?

What do you think would be the solution considering the present times we live in?
