Is standard economic forecasting and analysis fit for purpose? Or should economists be adopting methods from complex systems? This debate pits two leading practitioners against each other. Doyne Farmer is a world-leading authority on agent-based modelling. Catherine L. Mann is in charge of economic forecasting at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, which produces some of the most influential economic predictions. Chaired by Romesh Vaitilingam.
