“That such predictions are often wrong—and that we’re so often surprised by events in economics or politics—is a reminder that complex systems like economies or elections are filled with mechanisms that upset the hopes of overconfident planners. Too often we look at some puzzle, say Iraqi politics or income inequality, and think it is merely ‘complicated.’ We should know better.”
