A punter's guide to the pandemic

Thanks to an Australian reader who supplied the link to A punter's guide to the pandemic. Peter Martin, the author of the Punter's Guide, writes:

Like to bet on something more serious than the Melbourne Cup? At www.intrade.com you can bet on when bird flu will reach the United States. Disturbingly, the betting points to a 25 per cent chance that bird flu will hit the US some time this year and a 50 per cent chance it will hit early next year. Even more disturbing is that these markets have a history of being right.
