It is important to remember that morals are rules or principles which guide human conduct.

“Obama Factor” to win Iowa with 45% new voters

Obama will win the Iowa democrat caucuses tonight.  The fascinating factors are the overwhelming number of first time voters brought into the process by Obama.  45% of the voters in my precinct were first time voters – having never registered to vote before – the Obama Factor.

The Iowa Caucuses are begining to wrap up and the Obama factor is driving Obama to a win.

Statewide Obama is getting 37% … but in precincts where the Obama factor kicked in drawing stunning numbers of new voters into the process, Obama won 50% of the votes.  A powerful factor that can not be ignored as the canidates move to New Hampshire and beyond.

Disclosure:  I did not vote for Obama.

Alex Mandossian and “How We See Things”

While reviewing some preliminary study materials for a consulting call with Alex Mandossian, I stumbled upon a quote that was quite insightful!  Is your marketing message based upon how you see your market as?  Or is your message based upon how your market sees themselves as?

The quote is from Anais Nin:

We don’t see things as they are.  We see things as we are.  
                                                               Anais Nin (1903 – 1977)

Jonathan Ledger has recently posted a new case study to evaulate whether obtaining links from Blog Comments is valuable or not.  I think his case study will be VERY successful!  And I look forward to reading his results.

Let’s take a brief look at his case study.  Jonathan has built an adsense site with 11 unique articles.  To promote the site, he is going to post 600 comments on blogs that do not (*DO NOT*) use the "no follow" attribute.   The goal of the case study is to learn whether links obtained through comments posted on blogs have a positive impact on search engine rankings.

For example, my blogs (including this one) allow you to earn a link 
back to your site simply by posting good and valuable content in 
your comments.

Is Kenya the #1 country for Entrepreneurship?

The Kenyan Ambassador to the United States recently stayed at our house.  It was a delightful privilege and honor to host Ambassador Ogego and his wife Rose.  I grew up in Kenya, under the leadership of President Kenyatta.  It was fascinating to discuss the economic transitions from President Kenyatta to former president Moi to the current President Kibaki.

SBA says Regulatory Cost per Employee averages $7,647 per Employee

A recent study released by the federal government’s Small Business Administration stated that the regulatory cost per employee for small businesses with less than 20 employees is $7,647.

It can be reasonable to assume that this number is not an "under-estimate."  Which makes the release of this number especially troublesome.  What is the impact of regulatory costs on entrepreneurism? On new job creation?  On job retention?

Caterpillar Medium Wheel Loader China Market Analysis

Abstract:

Massive expansion in China’s infrastructure and cities has created a country-wide construcion boom. New roads, buildings, and public works projects have caused increased demand for construction equipment, especially for multi-purpose vehicles such as a wheel laoder. Quick, and capable of performing a large variety of tasks, the wheel loader is must-have on any industrial job-site. As such, the growth of the market has been tremendous, and there are many manufacturers (both old and new) jockeying for a piece of the action. Caterpillar and other wheel loader manufacturers (such as Komatsu and Volvo) are in country, and have equity positions with domestic wheel loader manufacturers. Working with their business partner, Cat has set aggressive sales goals, but has found the Chinese market resistant to the charms of their brand. In China, the wheel loader buyer bases purchasing decisions on price, and does not value durability, parts availability, used equipment, rental eqiupment nor program financing – all of which are the key elements of Cat’s global success to date. With this project, Caterpillar hopes to gain a better understanding of the China wheel loader marketplace, and the market potential for new, used, and rental equipment.

U.S. Gold Bullion

Gold and Gold Stocks play an important role in striking a balance in investment portfolio diversification.

The goal of portfolio diversification is to balance asset classes with different risk profiles so that we achieve a lower overall risk.  Historically, Gold Bullion has averaged 13% volatility and Gold Stocks have averaged 38% volatility.  At first glance, it might be easy to perceive Gold and Gold Stocks as “risky.”   However, in calculating overall portfolio risk, gold bullion and gold stocks can actually be used to enhance the total return for a portfolio while actually reducing the overall market risk in the portfolio.
