Does Stock Forecasting Work?
"Top economists and investors alike
failed to see it (financial crisis) coming...(George
Soros...Warren Buffett.. Ben Bernanke.. Alan Greenspan..
Paul Volcker..) But just when you think that such foresight
is outside the reach of common man, some prognosticator
emerges with a specific contrarian view and then with eerie
accuracy hits the nail on the head. Take for instance, the
small group of esteemed economists and financial managers
that called the housing crisis.....Then there is Med Jones,
the president of the International Institute of
Management... Although Jones is less known, he turned out to
be the most accurate in predicting many of the downturn’s

"..A prescient prediction...Yones
said: It is true that the US economy grew at 3.5 percent rate
in 4th quarter of 2006, but the economic real growth is much
less than advertised. Since 2001, economic growth has been
largely fueled by rapid increases in asset prices (housing
bubble) and expanding consumer debt rather than development
projects, which results in non-sustainable and unhealthy
(debt-driven) growth...Many Americans refinanced their homes
during the real-estate boom to pay for living expenses. With
the expected housing bubble bust (declining housing values),
Americans could lose a significant part of their savings"

geniuses are discovered. For years they work hard trying to
solve incredibly complex problems, they labor in relative
obscurity until they achieve great results. At first they
are ignored, dismissed or ridiculed by their peers, later
they are recognized for their exceptional abilities and
achievements. These exceptional experts saw what most of the

Med Jones, an unorthodox American economist, proposed what might be
the most important contribution to global socioeconomic development
and public policies. He introduced the first Gross National
Happiness / Well-being (GNH / GNW) model that utilized a
multidimensional development framework and created the first global
GNW / GNH Index as a progress measurement tool. The GNH Index served
as a blueprint for later well-being development frameworks and
happiness econometric models…
Prominent economists that followed in this
economist's footsteps are Joseph Stiglitz (USA), Amartya Sen
(India), Jean-Paul Fitoussi (France). In 2009, they published a
report commissioned by (former) President of France, Mr. Sarkozy,
calling for a global "statistical system which goes beyond
commercial activity to measure personal well-being”. In the same
year, the famous Gallup Poll launched a global well-being index
survey based on a subset of the global GNH Index. In 2014 the
renowned Michael Porter launched the social progress Index (SPI).

enhancement of current data-based indices for annual reporting on
state and regional levels of sustainable peace. This project could
build on the Global Peace Index for measuring and reporting on
sustainable peace worldwide, but integrate promotive, pro-social
assessments. This initiative could be informed by such initiatives
as the Gross National Happiness Index (Med Jones, 2006), the eight
bases of a Culture of Peace (UN Resolution A/RES/52/13), and the
Peace Scale (Klein, Goertz & Diehl, 2008).

Med Jones Bio
Mr. Jones is recognized as one of the few experts who predicted the
US financial crisis. In his 2006 research paper,
U.S. Economic Risks and Strategies, he warned about several
socioeconomic risks in the decade of 2007 to 2017. In Jan 2007 he
published a white paper challenging the US President’s State of the
Union Address, the Federal Reserve Chairman and the popular opinion
of mainstream economists. He warned about the US financial crisis of
2008 caused by the housing bubble and the subprime mortgages,
followed by socioeconomic challenges driven by rising national debt,
consumer debt, the social security deficit, inflation and currency
crises. His statements and predictions are followed by many
investment advisors around the world.
He is also considered as one of the pioneers of happiness economics. He
