The Bowman Standard

Scott Wilson

AS THE WORLD SWIRLS IN MILITARY CONFLICT, SOCIAL DISORDER AND CLIMATE CATASTROPHE, GOVERNMENT LEADERS RECRUIT SUPER-FORECASTERS - THEIR NATION'S MOST NON-BIASED CITIZENS - TO PREDICT EVENTS AND PROPOSE POLICY PRESCRIPTIONS... From 2012 to 2028, this raucous globe spinning romp considers prospects and pitfalls for three countries crucial to the electric age. China, the USA and Australia compete, cooperate and mark their success with a common scoring system - The Bowman Standard - to determine new spheres of power.

Super-forecasters gather for quadrennial assessments with the world's most influential advisors: Mr Wang, a Chinese Communist Party apparatchik with a demanding boss, Tiffany St. James, a do-gooding American heiress, and Hope Peterman, a management consultant briefed to preserve the wealth of her client, an elite cabal secretly ruling Australia.

Their teams examine recent events to seek to maximize Bowman Standard scores in five categories: politics, economics, social, defence and the environment.

Factual and funny, this book will appeal to readers who like a broad perspective on recent history, current affairs and our near future.
