Putting the results in context

As any other method, models are subject to bias. Therefore, as a general rule, don't be overly confident the results of an individual econometric model. Instead of relying on results from single models, the recommended strategy consult combined models or, even better, a combined forecast that includes forecasts from different methods, each of which includes different data.
