Dr Bruce Bueno de Mesquita/predictions based on mathematical

Post by SLK230 » Thu Dec 04, 2008 4:27 am

Have any of you heard of Dr Bruce Bueno de Mesquita he is being called the next Next Nostradamus. His predictions are based on mathematical algorithms.

According to the History channel his predictions are quite accurate.

Does anyone have a opinion of him or his predictions?

He has impressive credentials.

If his methodology is truly scientific or mathematical, then it will be confirmed.

With a name like Besquita, I bet he does side jobs as a pool guy. :lol:
