"Don’t ask what science can do for you." is the clever title.
As I understand it, the prediction markets in science would not be easily influenced by the scientists and they would take into account a group of people currently completely neglected in scientific evaluations: those who left academia dissatisfied. Not a new approach in the industry, but certainly not something that has been tried in a research-oriented environment, as far as I know.
