  • Our Tournament in partnership with The Economist for the year 2021 has concluded. The winners are:

    Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to all of our forecasters for participating! Winners will be contacted by email to recieve a 1-year subscription to The Economist; if there are any issues or questions, please let us know.

    If you'd like to compete for subscriptions to The Economist, be sure to keep your forecasts updated in the Global Trends 2022 tournament.

    A few notes for some of our eagle-eyed readers:

    • The Economist 2021 tournament was launched under our previous tournament structure, which can be described in short, "whoever wins the most points, wins". Future tournaments (including the Global Trends 2022 tournament) will use our current tournament scoring system.

    • Our old contest leaderboard had a bug, and was inaccurate (it only showed the results of 11 questions). This is the definitive leaderboard for this tournament.

    • In the interest of resolving this tournament sooner rather than later, we've excluded 1 question from the tournament ranking. That question will be resolved eventually, but will not affect the results of this tournament. We apologize for the unforseen delay in the source's data.

    • Tamay's original announcement referred to "25 questions" in the tournament. After excluding the "net migration to UK" question, that leaves 21 questions total in our tournament. I've checked for any missed questions, and I could only find evidence that the tournament launched with the original 22 questions. I believe Tamay's quote was a mistake or typo at the time of announcement.
