It's interesting to think of economics as a chaotic systems, but I'm not fully convinced of that view by him. Economists say "maybe?" One does need to factor in that chaos theory undermines finance and economics.
I think what he calls "theory of narrative" is something that might still be a predictor of market movements, namely good 'ol market sentiment. Especially in this digital age of market manipulation being easy for whoever got in early enough, it might be interesting to figure out "real" (as in human) and "fake" (as in by bots and shills) sentiment and use that to see where markets might be going soon. Greater fool theory rests upon sentiment, doesn't it?
edit: also, I've been learning some more about scifi, is Cixin a good place to start?
