Terror Futures Market

Quote of the Day

“When I saw that article the other day about a market being established to bet on the probability of wars, terrorist attacks and assassinations, I dissed it completely out of hand as nonsense, incredible nonsense. All I could think of was what the blotter would look like. Let’s see. I’m short the Osama Bin Laden December ’04 calls, long 2 ambassadors to Middle East countries and have an Iraq/Iran swap on. I’m also considering some North Korea nuclear incident converts, but they’ve gotten away from me lately. “Get me a look at the East Coast Tunnels and Bridges puts, will you?

Huh? It just could not be true. Nobody is that warped. Well, evidently, they are. Big time."

--an anonymous Bear Stearns analyst on the proposed Terror Futures Market (policyanalysismarket.org)
