Expert Forecasters - Right or Wrong?

We will look at the history of expert forecasting from the weather, to politics, the stock market and economics, politics and global shifting events. How accurate are they? Should we believe them? Which type of forecasting works best? Why do we need forecasters and why do we place so much importance in them? We consider how forecasting influences political debate and social attitudes in the age of social media and how to tell the good from the bad.
