The Map and the Territory: Risk, Human Nature, and the Future of Forecasting

by Alan Greenspan
Penguin, October 2013   ISBN: 978-159420481-4
Price: $36.00

"The Map and the Territory is nothing less than an effort to update our forecasting conceptual grid.  It integrates the history of economic prediction, the new work of behavioral economists, and the fruits of the author’s own remarkable career to offer a thrillingly lucid and empirically based grounding in what we can know about economic forecasting and what we can’t.  The book explores how culture is and isn't destiny and probes what we can predict about the world's biggest looming challenges, from debt and the reform of the welfare state to natural disasters in an age of global warming."--publisher description
