Finance Friday: The Prediction Game

Everybody has an opinion about the future: what’s going to happen to the stock market, when will interest rates rise, who’s going to win the presidential election, which basketball team will win the Final Four, and so on. The only problem is, the future is unknowable with certainty. But we certainly love to listen to and often act on predictions about our unknowable futures.

The Prediction Game is an experiment designed to test your powers of prediction. I challenge you to watch the video, record your results (honestly!), and see how you do. Odds are—my prediction—you will learn something about yourself. I’m curious to know what your score was, so please feel free to share it below by making a quick comment.
