The most intricate ever organised came to an end in America on February 10th, bringing in $19.6bn. When America’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC) started auctioning spectrum in 1994, it did so because lotteries and “beauty pageants” to allocate the scarce resource seemed otherworldly when billions were at stake.
