David Murrin


David Murrin has been described as a polymath and his career has been focussed on finding deep-seated ‘patterns’ in history and using them to try and predict the future for markets and society in today’s turbulent times. He has a remarkable track record. In his 2009 book Breaking The Code of History he predicted that the next great viral epidemic would originate from China and in relation to the current pandemic, that it is almost “impossible for people to compute the magnitude of the disaster we are about to experience”.
