Självuppfyllande profetia
Definition:
En självuppfyllande profetia är en förutsägelse om framtiden som kommer att gå i uppfyllelse just på grund av själva existensen av förutsägelsen.
Exempel:
En inflytelserik person säger att "Nästa år kommer arbetslösheten att stiga". Eftersom folket då tror att det blir så, börjar de snålspara och förbereda sig på sämre tider. Eftersom folket slutar konsumera, leder detta till att en mindre mängd varor och tjänster förbrukas, vilket i sin tur gör att arbetslösheten stiger.
