This month report is entitled "Economics is the Sum of all our Choices". In this report, he refers to Alfred Marshall, one of the greatest economists that ever lived, who wrote in “Principles of Economics” that, “economics is a study of mankind in the ordinary business of life” and that, “the laws of economics are to be compared to the laws of the tides, rather than with the simple and exact law of gravitation. For the actions of men are so various and uncertain, that the best statement of tendencies, which we can make in a science of human conduct, must needs be inexact and faulty.” Mar Faber then explains that the same principles can be said about the movement of asset markets. Any forecast is therefore going to be inexact and faulty.
