The map and the territory: Risk, human nature, and the future of forecasting — A book event featuring Alan Greenspan
For many years, economists have made authoritative and mathematically complex predictions about where the US economy is headed. Yet as Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve and head of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Gerald Ford, observes in his new book, “The Map and the Territory,” which he will discuss on Jan. 14, 2014, at 5:30 pm ET, no one predicted the timing of the 2008 financial crisis, or its severity.
