In other words, the predictions by economists for the following year’s GDP were so incorrect that the final GDP was different from all economists’ forecasts in those six years. That means that during the entire 14 years, 40 percent of all economists were wrong in their estimates. How useful, therefore, are their estimates today? Not much.

In normal, everyday life, these biases can be helpful and keep us out of trouble. They help us to socialize, to accomplish group tasks, to avoid traps, to become promoted, and to live with others. In the markets, however, they can be disastrous. Portfolio managers are subject to the same biases. That’s why their performances over the years have been poor and why some investment stars come and go with changes in the markets.
