Prediction Markets will ‘start to move us into areas we haven't been before'

Director of Strategic Planning at Jansenn Ortho. (Hear him now in our free podcast)

Prediction Markets are ‘one of the best, if not the best ways of predicting the future'

Chief Research Scientist at Yahoo! Inc

You can't beat the market:
The ‘efficient market hypothesis' says that the price of a financial asset reflects all the information available and only reacts to surprising news.

Five major pharma companies have recently seized on an idea to improve their forecasting . They're creating ‘virtual markets' whose sole purpose is incorporating information . Their staff trade ‘virtual shares' on a ‘prediction market' – the price has proved to reflect an excellent picture of the future, beating the best known alternatives.

In the words of the Director of Strategic Planning at Janssen Ortho, Prediction Markets will ‘start to move us into areas we haven't been before'.
