    re Business Week stock market forecasts:
    “The following table ranks the 60 experts who participated in at least three annual forecasts during 2003-2007 based on their average absolute percentage error during that period. We did not include forecast records for 1997-2002 because, as shown by the first chart above, forecasting was apparently much more difficult during those years.”

    I don’t understand why one would not include data about forecasting accuracy because “forecasting was apparently much more difficult during those years.” WTF?
