Discussion article for the meetup : Prediction Markets and Futarchy

WHEN: 07 September 2014 03:30:00PM (-0400)

WHERE: 98 Elm St Apt 1, Somerville, MA

I will give a talk about prediction markets and futarchy. The talk is intended as a basic introduction for people who are new to the concept. After my slides, I hope to have a discussion about whether futarchy is feasible.

Cambridge/Boston-area Less Wrong meetups start at 3:30pm, and have an alternating location:

1st Sunday meetups are at Citadel in Porter Sq, at 98 Elm St, apt 1, Somerville.

3rd Sunday meetups are in MIT's building 66 at 25 Ames St, room 156. Room number subject to change based on availability; signs will be posted with the actual room number.

(We also have last Wednesday meetups at Citadel at 7pm.)

Our default schedule is as follows:

—Phase 1: Arrival, greetings, unstructured conversation.

—Phase 2: The headline event. This starts promptly at 4pm, and lasts 30-60 minutes.

—Phase 3: Further discussion. We'll explore the ideas raised in phase 2, often in smaller groups.

—Phase 4: Dinner.
