Abstract : Planners find it necessary to make projections of trends or other forecasts of probable events or changes from the present state. Sometimes they must emphasize improbable events relevant to their missions. The growing interest in forecasting suggests a need for principles or criteria for better as contrasted with worse ones. Some criteria are suggested along with an example which appears to be consonant with them. (Author)
