Future Babble: Why Pundits Are Hedgehogs and Foxes Know Best

Drawing on research in cognitive psychology, political science, and behavioral economics, award-winning journalist Dan Gardner explores our obsession with the future. He shows how famous pundits, "hedgehogs" who stick to one big idea no matter how circumstances change, become expert at explaining away predictions that are wrong while "foxes," who are more equivocal in their judgments, are simply more accurate.

After considering what we already have in our library and what our demands are at present, we've concluded not to summarize your suggestion. Sometimes we have to turn down even very good suggestions because they don't quite fit into any of our library's categories, because we've already covered the topic extensively, because the suggested content is too old (we focus on releases from the current year), or because we are unable to summarize this content due to legal restrictions. We thank you for your understanding. Please also understand that due to the amount of suggestions we get, we can't elaborate in detail on why we've decided against a particular one, but rest assured that we examine them all diligently.
