Teaching Prediction Markets

I gave an introductory lecture on prediction markets earlier today, in the context of a undergraduate course in Logistics at NTUA’s School of Mechanical Engineering. The feedback and responses on running some hands-on experiments (you can guess the software) were really great, I expect that this will be repeated in a few days when I’m giving a lecture again, in the course of Production Management & Control this time.

I also came up with some extended lecture notes, which you may find of value in the all-but-rare case of being interested in the topic and understanding greek (63 pgs, .pdf, published under CC attribution -share alike 3.0).
