New ways to share, trade and aggregate information using Internet-based markets are growing rapidly. These powerful knowledge markets help companies, schools, governments and individuals to acquire and master ever-growing bodies of knowledge. These capabilities achieve mastery of collective wisdom with stunning speed and accuracy.
"Market predictions often outperform those of even the best-informed expert." -- James Surowiecki, author, The Wisdom of Crowds.
Information markets resolve questions of science, technology, management, strategy, planning and policy far better than experts or management.
Through a ceaseless flurry of self-correcting exchanges and markets, covering everything from politics and business plans to sports and new product features, these potent markets generate new ideas and amass and refine knowledge and collective wisdom with breathtaking speed and uncanny accuracy.
"By gathering collective wisdom, idea markets can improve your forecasting, knowledge management, and decision making." -- Harvard Business Review
