Policy Analysis Market
Main article: Policy Analysis Market
Poindexter faced criticism from the media and some politicians about the Policy Analysis Market project,
a theoretical prediction market that would have rewarded participants for accurately predicting geopolitical trends in the Middle East and elsewhere.
This was portrayed in the media as allowing participants to profit from the assassination of heads of state and acts of terrorism due to such events being mentioned on illustrative sample screens showing the interface.
The controversy over the proposed futures market led to a Congressional audit of the IAO in general.
Funding for the IAO was subsequently cut and Poindexter retired from DARPA on August 12, 2003.
