Economists are sometimes compared to meteorologists in that both sometimes try to predict upcoming events, and both manage to do an acceptable job at this, but occasionally make mistakes. Neither can predict future events with complete certainty, as unforseen events tend to have an effect on the outcomes they are trying to predict. For economists, it may be a change in consumer confidence in a far off country that injects “error” into a prediction, while for a meteorologist, small changes, sometimes described as a “butterfly moving its wings”, can cause their predications to be incorrect.
