infomarkets: Info Markets

An open forum for discussing the emerging technology of

information markets (a.k.a. prediction markets, idea futures).

This can include discussions of technical innovations,

business ventures, or academic analyses.

Information markets are markets in state-contingent assets

which a patron constructs for the purpose of aggregating

information from diverse participants on topics of interest

to that patron. Examples include the Iowa Electronic

Markets, the Foresight Exchange, and the Hollywood Stock


There is now a DARPA initiative on this (find "SB012-012" at )

there are half a dozen hitech companies working in this area,

there have been several recent academic conferences, and

there are dozens of academic articles on this topic.
