Evaluating Predictions of Change
This article applies a technique developed by Robert C. Merton (1981) and Roy D. Henriksson and Robert C. Merton (1981) for evaluating the market timing of financial managers to macroeconomic predictions of change. This methodology may be used to determine whether the predictions may be of value to the user. As an illustration, the methodology is applied to a set of real gross national product forecasts.
