This is where Google can really make scary scary scary profits. I am sure they want to be careful with the way they leverage their Database of Intentions, but nobody in the world has access to as much user data as Google does.

A while ago I whinged on about how Google could leverage their data to own just about any trading market in the world.

the danger with predictive market technology is that the prediction doesnt even need to be right. if google announces a prediction, everyone will believe it, act upon that belief, and drive the market towards the prediction. in this sense the prediction will *become* right. it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

i'd be surprised if google rolled something like this out for the stock market though. too controversial, and too much of a departure from attacking MSFT and YHOO.
