The Most Important Moments in Forecasting Dating back to the ancient time of the venerated Oracle at Delphi, humans have been curious as to what the future has in store. The desire for foresight has been proven to be not only a subject of extreme curiosity but also one of considerable need. In Histories of the Future, author Jonathon Karelse walks us through the storied timeline of forecasting and its disparate origins in places like sugar beet farms, naval warfare, and computer labs. It begins with the period leading up to the calamitous 1929 stock market crash and brings us through the decades, showing how the blend of technological advancements and business progression have advanced us to where we are today. Histories of the Future opens the potential for new and unique ways of understanding this core business process and gives light to an entirely new way of viewing the future.
