A Better Crystal Ball: The Right Way to Think About the Future by J. Peter Scoblic and Philip E. Tetlock

Knowing that what Scoblic and Tetlock were recommending would send up a chorus from forecasters far and wide, we put together this special section to include commentaries from a number of notable experts:
