A nice piece here from Fox TV (never thought I’d say that) on the wisdom of crowds and how prediction markets function.
The John Stossel show covered a bunch of other aspects of the American gambling industry in this six part series, all of which can be found on on www.midasoracle.org.

This is the first UK General Election where the three main party leaders are going head to head in a televised debate. Although criticised by some as reducing the campaign to a popularity contest, this style of debate has proved hugely popular in the US presidential elections.
On Thursday (televised on ITV) Gordon Brown, Nick Clegg and David Cameron will share the stage for the first of three debates and we’re offering markets on them.
