THE HIGHEST BIDDER

#85 Going to Market

U.S. Presidential Election markets are real-money futures markets where contract payoffs will be determined by the popular vote. In the developed world there is a number one country. In this country all that is offered is consumed. No matter if it's good or bad, what matters is that you choose. During elections it's the same thing: the country becomes a big market where each candidate is offered to the highest bidder, without thinking about the consumer or better said, people.
