Economists are bright, intelligent, well-intentioned individuals but there is one big thing they don’t know: They don’t know what they don’t know.
Take a moment to consider how often professional economists miss the next big shock to the global economy because of an unknown, unforeseen, unexpected or highly unlikely event.
In 1998, the economy was on the brink of a global meltdown because of a little-understood algorithm. In 2001, an unforeseen terrorist attack rocked the world economy.
In 2005, unexpected technological advances in horizontal drilling and fracking technology sparked an energy renaissance that turned America into the largest net producer of energy in the world–an event no economist saw coming. And, most recently, the housing crisis and the ensuing global recession escaped the collective attention of every known economist.
Jack Uldrich is different from your ordinary Economist. Billed as the “Un-Economist” Jack Uldrich doesn’t claim to be able to predict the future.
But, by focusing on what organizations “don’t know,” he does help them remain vigilant, humble and adaptable so that they are better prepared to meet whatever challenge is coming next.
