Innovation Lottery

A lottery that produces a prize fund
  [vote for,

A lottery, people buy tickets hoping they'll win, and some will. The fund divides into ticket prizes and the maintaining of a separate prize for innovative idea stimulus (and inevitably also an admin cream-off). The innovative idea stimulus is also a prize, but awarded (in the way now familiar) to the satisfaction of a specific innovative goal that would benefit industry and society etc. People feel invested in the outcome.

       So practical. Should be used for geoengineering global warming ideas.

       A good mechanism for a slightly less immoral Las Vegas too. InnoVegas, perhaps.
