167. Hmmm. Search under 'futures markets total information awareness'
Edited on Sun Feb-26-06 12:52 PM by EVDebs

""Futures Markets Applied to Prediction, or FutureMAP, intends to "concentrate on market-based techniques for avoiding surprise and predicting future events." It will analyze data from the world's economy in attempt to predict political instability, threats to national security, and in general every major event in the near future. The IAO's stated strategy for this division includes "the markets must also be sufficiently robust to withstand manipulation," possibly suggesting the intention of altering future events to further the goals of the United States. See prediction market for more detail on the general phenomenon and its relationship to propaganda efforts. ""

All this 'outsourcing' of national security related information, especially involving US citizens information to foreigners, as with Ptech in the PRE-9/11 world, beg certain questions. Ptech was allowed FAA and NAS--National Airspace Systems Agency-- computer access:

Are we about to do same under Dubai Ports World AND via the supposedly non-existent TIA, now offshored and privatized ? Looks like it.
