Answering Readers’ Questions…

Hi everyone. There are a lot of questions to answer. Some are very big, and some I’m not sure I can really answer, but I’ll do my best over the next couple of days. Here’s the first one from Marie:

These new attacks on Obama by the McCain/Palin calling him a socialist, what impact if an will they have on people voting for Obama? Did General Powell (Ret) help with voters?

Thank you!

Hi Marie,

I asked the tarot if these new attacks on Obama calling him a socialist would anger Obama voters and motivate them even more to vote:

The answer: Yes.

It looks like Obama supporters are not going to buy this and those who have made up their mind in support of him are just going to become more avid supporters because of it. They don’t like the unfairness and feel this is a dirty mischaracterization of him. It will motivate more people to openly defend him. So it will backfire on the McCain camp.

I asked the tarot if retired General Colin Powell’s endorsement would help undecided voters decide to vote for Obama:

The answer: Yes.

It seems that in the next few weeks the economy will again be on people’s minds. People are really suffering financially right now and it’s going to get worse before it gets better. It’s strange, but the people who are being swayed by Powell are those who don’t want to vote for Obama, but feel there is no choice because McCain is just not a viable option. They know it will ultimately be in their best interest and provide a truly new (and much needed) direction for this country. Very interesting. But it doesn’t look like Powell’s endorsement will make a huge difference as Obama is so far ahead and will pull out even more once the G7 excitement wears down and the markets go crazy again.

And from Gordon:

What re your views on Chian and India economies and its effect on the Australian ecocnomy?
Also please give your readings on Pan Australia Limited, Murchison Metals Limited and Industrea Limited. Any chance of recovery or to sell now.

Many Thanks

OK that’s a lot of questions hidden inside a question. I’m not sure I can answer all of it succinctly enough for one post. I’d have to look at the charts of the companies mentioned and so I’ll save that part of the post for a later date after I look through my data base.

In answer to the other question about how China and India will effect the Australian economy, I’m not an economist so I’ll have to ask the cards and try to interpret them the best I can. Please do me the favor of posting how you think it relates because I’ll have no idea if any of it will make sense. 

I’ll ask a yes/no question to start, and if you want more data then put that in the next post as well.

Will the growing economies of China and India adversely effect the Australian economy?

The answer: No.

It looks like there is a new business model or paradigm shift in the Australian economy. The change has caused some problems and unbalanced things a bit, but as long as your political and business leaders work with an eye toward eliminating old ways of doing things, and instead of competing use these new markets as a work force, focusing Australians on the intellectual property side, innovation and development, the economy will find a new strategy that will work well for all involved.

OK these I’ll save for later. Bed time for me. It’s late! (Sorry Steve, I swear I’ll get to your question soon!)

RE: TSX, sorry about that, forgot to send that info. I believe it is October 25, 1861 (www.tsx.com/en/pdf/TSXHistory.pdf). If that does not help, RIMM is Canadian but should also be in your US database. Actually, our election just happened Oct 14th. Conservatives won. (4 year term). I have already lost a significant amount of life savings – can not imagine even more loss in a Dec crash. I think we may already had our crash and hope to get some of the money back soon. Thanks again. Have a good one.

I enjoy your blog. I check it out almost everyday. I was wondering what are your vibes on the situation in Mexico? My own feelings are that we should keep a close eye on this. I feel the violence in Mexico is more of a threat to the average American’s personal safety than Iraq or Afganistan. My own intution says we will be asked by the Mexican government for police and/or military support, before this is over. What do you think? Thank you for your time and insight.

Hi Denise: I know that Hillary Clinton, when asked what role she would have in the Obama Administration, has said that she would like to remain a Senator. I really believe that Obama has big plans for her. She’s a very intelligent woman and I greatly admire her. 1) What role will Hillary have in an Obama Administration? 2) Will Hillary ever be President? She is an amazing lady and would be a great President. Thanks!

I want to first thank you for taking the time to answer all of our questions. THANK YOU and I hope you are feeling better!!! Like I’ve said before…it’s unbelievable in how accurate you are! Second, I think it’s amazing that Colin Powell has endorsed Barack Obama. In my opinion it says a lot about the “Obama movement.” I just want people to please go out and vote!!!

Now here are my questions:
1. Since the polls recently are showing Barack Obama in the lead in some of the battleground states…will people really go out there to vote for him?
2. Do you see more of a shift in those battleground states toward Barack Obama in the upcoming weeks?
3. Do you still see Barack Obama as president?

    Again, thank you for answering my previous questions about the election. I have another questions to ask if it’s OK. Do you see Obama/Biden winning the popular and electoral vote in the state of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Indiana, North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia?
    Thank you in advance for your time.
