Hari Seldon

by Mark Keeler

I think that todays central bankers and other Captains of industry would be wise to look for other ways of predicting human nature, economics and their interplay through history. Harry Seldon has put forward a theory of "Psychohistory" to explain this interplay and how it can help predict future market events.

I'm not sure if this could be a foundation for economic models for the banks but it could be worth a try.

Chaos theory, predicting future and quantum computing
by: Nicolas Kohout

Foundation is definitely one of my favorite sci-fi book.
However, predicting the future is utopia in my opinion as it's unpredictable by it's very nature. See chaos theory about that.
In the other hand quantum computing breakthrough will probably helps a lot in being more accurate with predictions but it will always remain a game of probabilities and not certainties.

Its Been a While
by: Niekie

Its been a while since I read Asimov's Foundation Series of books. One of my favourite sci-fi series. Personally I think Trump should nominate Hari Seldon as the next Fed governor! - Maybe we should start a petition?
