‘What is past is prologue’, said Shakespeare. The three Black Swan events of 2016: the Brexit vote, Trump’s election victory and Indian demonetisation, are just that but there is no agreement in their consequences in 2017. I was therefore tempted to write the epilogue and depend upon Pythia, the Oracle at the temple of Apollo and the Sage Asita from ancient India to provide the main story about 2017.
