Why Prediction Markets are Good for Society

What are prediction markets?

PRO TIP: Rather than simply gauging online sentiment or incentivizing survey participation, prediction markets have a unique property: in order to cast a prediction, forecasters must wager real money. The more money forecasters wager, the more they are able to move the market in the direction of the outcome that they foresee.
