Future markets future
By Tom Smith

Like many, I would like to see (more, bigger, more efficient) markets where small time punters can take positions (i.e. bet) on all kinds of things, weather, political events, scientific claims, and so on. It would be fun, and it would produce valuable new information. Tom Bell suggests the CFTC may be signalling that that's OK with them.
