Don Moore, Professor, BerkeleyHaas
In this talk, I begin by distinguishing three forms of overconfidence: overestimation, overplacement, and overprecision. Of these, overprecision (inflated confidence in the accuracy of our knowledge or predictions) is the most robust and least understood. I document its role in self-assessment, test performance, and macroeconomic forecasts. This leads to an epistemological exploration regarding... More >

Why should we pursue a critical theory of democratic protest? Assuming that we should, what would such a critical theory look like today?
