Motley Fool says 3M among world’s most efficient companies

The site is talking about “return on equity,” or ROE. It’s a measure of how much money the company makes with its capital, or “your bang per buck as an investor,” the Fool writes.

    Lovely snippet, Dan. Don’t know if you remember me, but I was a fellow former Armstrong Gyre staffer–and a fellow current online business journalist working for the New York online startup I’ve recently gotten hooked on the MinnPost and follow you guys on Twitter. Nice work, all.
