The accountant was interviewed last, and was asked the same questions.
At the end of his interview, before answering the last question,

checked the telephone for listening devices, and asked, "How much do you want it to be?"

Then an accountant was interviewed, and was asked the same questions.
At the end of his interview (s)he was asked "How much is two plus two?"
The accountant replied, "Four."
"Are you sure?" The accountant replied, "Plus or minus 10%. Nothing material."

At the end of his interview (s)he was asked "How much is two plus two?"
The economist looked around, closed the door, drew all the shades, leaned forward and in a low voice asked, "How much do you want it to be?"
