Re: Assassination Markets.

"You've just invented assassination markets."

I seem to recall that it was some sort of market that DARPA was running which was actually meant to predict the future by getting the opinions of experts on a subject to put their expertise where their mouths are and put some money on their expected outcome.

When the project became public knowledge (not that it was a secret project in the first place) DARPA had to shut it down.
