Sounds like Idea Futures to me. Check out the "Foresight Exchange",
or look for "Robin Hanson" and "Idea Futures". Try:
The novel Earthweb by Marc Stiegler takes this idea to an extreme,
literally saving the world by using an advanced real-time idea futures
market to determine the best strategy for defending the Earth from an
attacking alien ship.
It's a really cool idea. Kudos to your dream-activated creativity center. :)
