In 100 Years: Leading Economists Predict the Future (MIT Press) books pdf file

What will the world look like in 100 years? This is a question that many people have asked themselves, but few have attempted to answer with rigor and evidence. Fortunately, a book published by the MIT Press in 2014 offers some insights from ten prominent economists, including Nobel laureates and several likely laureates, who share their visions of the future in various scenarios. The book is titled In 100 Years: Leading Economists Predict the Future, and it is edited by Ignacio Palacios-Huerta, a professor of management and strategy at the London School of Economics.


The book is a pithy and engaging volume that shows that economists may be better equipped to predict the future than science fiction writers. Economists' ideas, based on both theory and practice, reflect their knowledge of the laws of human interactions as well as years of experimentation and reflection. Although perhaps not as screenplay-ready as a work of fiction, these economists' predictions are ready for their close-ups.

The book covers a wide range of topics, such as the transformation of work and wages, the continuing increase in inequality, the economic rise of China and India, the endlessly repeating cycle of crisis and (projected) recovery, the benefits of technology, the economic consequences of political extremism, and the long-range effects of climate change. For example, 2013 Nobelist Robert Shiller provides an innovative view of future risk management methods using information technology; and Martin Weitzman raises the intriguing but alarming possibility of using geoengineering techniques to mitigate the inevitable effects of climate change.

The book is available in both print and electronic formats from the MIT Press website, as well as from other online retailers . You can also read a sample chapter online, or download a PDF file of the entire book for free from a third-party website. However, we recommend that you support the publisher and the authors by purchasing a copy of the book if you find it interesting and useful.

If you are curious about what the future might hold in 100 years, or if you want to learn more about the perspectives and predictions of some of the world's leading economists, then you should definitely check out this book. It will stimulate your imagination and challenge your assumptions, while also providing you with some solid facts and arguments. As the editor says in his introduction, "The future is uncertain, but it is not unknowable."
