|[Nettime-nl] nettime: American Action Market|
Though there was an outcry over the Pentagon's terrorism futures market, a similar online exchange is in the works to predict what the U.S. government is up to. The American Action Market will offer various Washington "futures" that can be bet upon and traded. Examples include: http://www.wired.com/news/politics/0,1283,59879,00.html The AAM market is the brainchild of a half-dozen academics from various colleges, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Yale University, New York University and the University of Montreal. Most, however, are keeping their identities quiet until they get an institutional go-ahead. The market was organized on Nettime, a politics and culture mailing list. ______________________________________________________ * Verspreid via nettime-nl.
