Good Judgment’s public Superforecasts about when a COVID vaccine will be widely distributed have captured attention from Wall Street to Main Street. The MAN Group now suggests that these Superforecasts can serve as a leading market indicator of how shares in “firms exposed to an extension of the pandemic” will perform.
On 8 September 2020, the Superforecasters estimated a 71% chance that there would be enough FDA-approved vaccine available to vaccinate 25 million people sometime in Q4 ’20 or Q1 ’21. Over the next two weeks, their probability forecast for that same outcome dropped quickly down to 54%.
Investors who followed our vaccine forecast had an opportunity to anticipate the market. The Goldman Sachs Health Risk Basket of airline, casino, hotel, and cruise stocks dropped around five percentage points, but not until 21 September, well after the Superforecasters signaled their increased pessimism about the timing of a vaccine.
The story in “View from the Floor” concludes: “if there is one thing better than the wisdom of the crowds, it is the wisdom of well-informed crowds.” The Superforecasters are that crowd.
To better understand the consequences of climate change over the short-, medium- and long-term, the Forethought Foundation turned to Good Judgment to forecast how rising global temperatures will impact on critical issues like drought, floods, food availability, and severe weather events. For this project, which was launched in conjunction with William MacAskill’s new book, What We Owe The Future, the Superforecasters also made predictions on future levels of CO2 emissions, the future of the Amazon biome, the cost of solar energy, and the risk of human extinction. The resulting report was released in August 2022.
To gauge what to expect over the next 10 years, the thinktank adelphi teamed up with Good Judgment, the world’s most accurate geopolitical and global risk forecasting entity.
