PunditTracker – Bringing Accountability to the Prediction Industry
PunditTracker seeks to change the game by playing the role of public scorekeeper. We will catalog and score the predictions of various types of pundits, starting with the following: Financial, Political, Sports, and Entertainment. Pundits who demonstrate a track record of making of accurate, out-of-consensus predictions will appropriately receive their due. Meanwhile, those who are bombastic solely to garner media attention will be exposed, no longer able to free ride off of inflated reputations. Grading professional pundits is only half the PunditTracker story. The other half is grading users such as yourself. They are providing users a platform with which to make their own predictions (more on the mechanics below). They have little reason to believe the best pundits are the mainstream ones on television each day — in fact, there are reasons to believe they are the worst! By leveling the playing field between “pundits” and “users,” we hope to introduce a much-needed dose of meritocracy into the system. This will be added to Prediction Markets Subject Tracer™.
