Great stock or climate change indicator?
By Kyle Cranmer
I propose to gather a collection of sock price histories and various indicators of climate change (temperatures, CO2 levels, etc.) and anonymize their labels. These would be used to create a game or prediction market so that the players would be incentivized to choose which of these time series they think show a positive trend. This blind labeling of climate change time series would be useful for providing input into the debates around particular time series that are heavily biased by the politics surrounding the issue.
