Society is pretending its actions don’t have consequences. It’s badly mistaken. History teaches us that there is no free lunch, reminds Dr. Ben Hunt, publisher of EpsilonTheory.com. And science informs us that even the most simple systems become nearly impossible to predict or control with 100% precision as time and variables change. But our society today is ignoring these lessons. It’s betting that the increasingly excessive distortions required to keep the status quo continuing will succeed, and come at no cost. That’s a losing bet, warns Hunt.
