Human oracles

  1. Apr 4, 2005 #1
    I remember reading an article a while back that bookies & betting houses are the best predictors of the future we humans have. This article came out about the time of the US election, and stated that bookies have rarely if ever predicted the outcome of the US elections wrong, and for Bush's first one accurately predicted which state will go Republican or Democrat.

    Bookies were rated higher than even paid professional consultants at predicting the future.

    Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone else read that article, and would be able to provide a source/link for me.

    Since money is the milk of politics, it would seem bookies would be no exception--but yes, I recall this on the news. I use to make money this way too. :uhh:
