Intellectual Property and the U.S. Economy and How Trademarks Predict Voting in Presidential Elections : The Amazing Result
The U.S. Department of Commerce
has just issued
its report on
"Intellectual Property and the U.S. Economy".
Everyone will be commenting on that report but we found a unique Presidential-election-related characteristic in one of the maps in that report, Map 2: Trademark-Intensive Industries' Share of Covered Employment by State, 2010:
Now compare that map to the division of the United States into red and blue States in the Presidential Election 2008 (map via NPR.org):
Now that is a pretty good match.
So what do trademark-intensive industries share in common with voting behavior in Presidential elections?
The answer is pretty clear is it not?

Federal Bailouts to Turn Immense Profit According to Treasury Prognosis: Obama May Ride Into a 2nd Term on a Wave of Economic Success
Well, there you have it.
Don't (easily) doubt the financial savvy of the people at the Fed.
It was all a giant scam to fill the U.S. Treasury coffers.
Well done ;-)
Jim Puzzanghera at the Los Angeles Times writes in
Treasury predicts all federal bailouts likely will turn profit - latimes.com that:
In view of such developments, Obama will be very tough to beat in the upcoming Presidential election."The Obama administration expects to recoup all the bailout money spent on banking and insurance firms, auto companies, mortgage finance companies and struggling homeowners during and after the 2008 financial crisis -- and likely turn a profit... as much as $163 billion in a best-case scenario."
For the Republicans to win, they would have to abandon their theoretical nostalgia-tinged fringe politics and economics and return to the real world, which is at this point an unlikely prospect.
On the other hand, if political parties develop the will to win, stranger things have happened. It will be interesting to see how the issues shape up down the road.
