Forecasting consists in the analysis of data and their future extrapolation. Forecasted events result from different types of formal models analyzing data on trends. Two fundamental assumptions governing forecasting models are the adoption of extreme time windows and the principle of continuity. Megatrends are forecasts on steroids. They refer to major transformations that influence many other changes, profoundly changing social forms and mechanisms and impacting on different economic sectors.

Abstract

Forecasting consists in the analysis of data and their future extrapolation. Forecasted events result from different types of formal models analyzing data on trends. Two fundamental assumptions governing forecasting models are the adoption of extreme time windows and the principle of continuity. Megatrends are forecasts on steroids. They refer to major transformations that influence many other changes, profoundly changing social forms and mechanisms and impacting on different economic sectors.
