Although I am not on the list (Note: I wonder why, was my initial investment too low to be included?), I noticed that “Economist” is number 1. Furthermore, I’m relatively sure that the person currently in 3rd place is an economist.
Constantly economists are put down for their lack of forecasting ability – however they seem to be doing pretty well when their is money on the line 😉
Update: The next day it was updated to include Goonix and myself. Goonix is 8th, and I’m 19th. I wasn’t involved in the election trading though so I’m not taking this as evidence of me being the worst economist 🙂
