Few events are as central to democratic countries and their economies as an election. This panel will discuss different approaches  that are used today to predict the outcome of an election - comparing the value of information from experts, polls, surveys, time  series, betting markets and others, as well as their shortfalls - and reflect on our ability today to forecast political events.

A reception will follow the panel presentation.
