Quote from: zack on June 14, 2014, 04:39:08 PMCan any of these bribery situations occur? Why or why not?If I am on trial for a crime, perhaps I could make a large bet that I will be declared guilty. Someone on the jury could do this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jury_nullification If you send an application to a government regulator to start a controversial business, a prediction market bribe could help get regulators to ignore you.If a researcher want to win a big research grant, he could use a prediction market to bribe the government officials into accepting his proposal.I you want regulators to shut down a competing business, it should be easy. Health regulators, drug regulators, handicapped regulations... There are enough laws that law enforcement can get any business closed.
