New Contract Rule Commentators Sought

We are going to implement (initially on a trial basis) the solicitation of comments from active traders and subject matter specialists on contract rules for new markets before we list them.

This will not apply to every new market but will more often apply to new categories or new events.

The objective of this innovation will be obvious to many but it’s consistency with the wisdom of crowds is appealing as we are looking to tap into a greater and more diverse knowledge base.

If you wish to receive by email notification of new markets with draft rules where you will have a short time to comment please let me know and I will add your name to the list.

G.W. Bush: Biggest Regret?

After reading this article I started to think about the good and bad things that G.W. Bush presided over.

While his stated biggest regret is the failure of intelligence in Iraq it got me wondering if people believe this should be his biggest regret if he should have any at all.

Whatever your view it would be great to hear them on this topic.
