What Grand Challenge do you propose a prize competition should solve? [public]
An incentive prize competition should solve the grand challenge of making positive changes to lotteries.
There is huge potential to create positive impacts by making changes to lotteries, but lotteries have been relatively slow to make changes that benefit society.
Government bottlenecks, lack of market incentives, and other barriers prevent these positive changes.
An incentive prize competition should break through these barriers to enable changes that positively impact our world.
(Examples of changes that could create positive impacts can be found here:https://www.thelotterycompetition.org/details/#examples
What would the world look like when the Grand Challenge is solved? [public]
The solution to this grand challenge will set off a domino effect of socially beneficial changes to lotteries all around the world.
This will create positive effects for billions of people by:
a) Reducing irresponsible lottery operations and decreasing negative effects caused by lotteries.
b) Helping to solve many other grand challenges by improving one of the largest mechanisms for raising funds on the planet. Lotteries will provide additional funding to the most socially beneficial organizations/causes and fuel positive changes around the world.
