Experts’ forecasts; well reasoned, well written and pointless

Money lost can be regained; time lost is lost forever.  To save time, the Monday Morning Program offers abstracted investment education. It also offers techniques for making money investing and regaining any money lost.

The table below is a market forecast summary for the decade, made by seven recognized organizations of experts. The forecasts range from a -5.8% (inflation-adjusted) to a positive 5% (non-inflation-adjusted). All of them can’t be correct, of course.

Twenty-four hours a day is not enough to study these in depth. They are  as well written and as well reasoned as they are pointless to read.

Some will be correct; they will attribute it to skill. As Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences winner Daniel Kahneman convincingly shows in his book ThinkingFast And Slow, correct predictions and correct stock picks are entirely a matter of luck.

If you have the interest, read them, but read them for amusement only.
