Future babble : why expert predictions fail - and why we believe them anyway /

by Gardner, Dan.

Publisher: Carlton North, Vic. Scribe Publications 2010Description: xi, 305 p. ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 287-292) and index.Summary: Future Babble examine why our brains yearn for certainty about the future, why we are attracted to those who predict it confidently, and why it's so easy for us to ignore the trail of outrageously wrong forecasts. In this fast-paced, example-packed, sometimes darkly hilarious book, journalist Dan Gardner shows how seminal research by UC Berkeley professor Philip Tetlock proved that pundits who are more famous are less accurate ? and the average expert is no more accurate than a flipped coin. Gardner also draws on current research in cognitive psychology, political science, and behavioral economics to discover something quite reassuring: The future is always uncertain, but the end is not always near.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
