On the uses of forecasting in market formation

    Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

    Resumé

    Forecasts are central to processes of market formation; they partake in the performativity of markets by visualising market developments and directing market actors' gaze towards these developments. Thus, forecasting is a certain way of looking that may be said to bring into being what it sees - market formation in the future tense, so to speak. In this paper, we seek to substantiate this claim by exploring four functions of forecasting: creating the future, avoiding the past, making (the) present, and casting forecasters. The exploration is conceptually guided, but finds an empirical focal point in the case of the Danish real estate market.
