FIFA World Cup predictions
Every four years, I write a ‘research note’ that has many more readers than anything else I publish. Today, I published the next edition of these notes. It is the forecast for the FIFA World Cup this year in Qatar. It has become a tradition to make these forecasts to show that economists have a sense of humour (they don’t) and can actually forecast things that matter (they can’t). Or rather, most of them can’t. I developed a proprietary econometric model in 2014 to forecast the winner of the previous two World Cups and so far, my track record is 100% accurate. Clearly, nothing can go wrong in making another forecast.
As you might have guessed from the intro, this note is very much tongue in cheek and has absolutely nothing to do with investments.
