What Price Presidency?

Share Article

How does the Office of the U.S. President fare as a financial asset for a President, after he finishes his term, for the rest of his life? How much will Barack Obama or John McCain stand to gain financially, directly and indirectly, if they're elected President? A newly launched financial asset management website, http://www.amuktrade.com, invites everybody to submit their responses.

All are invited to go to amuktrade.com to submit their responses to the following two questions for free:

1. How much do they think Barack Obama will earn on an average in a year for the rest of his life after he finishes his term as the President, if he's elected? Readers need to enter 1% of the annual average earnings amount that they're guessing, in current dollar values. For example, if they think that he'll earn, on an average, annually, $1,000,000 (they could be way off), in the "Estimated Price" box for "ObamaEarnings" they have to just enter: 10,000 (ten thousand, no comma).

2. How much do they think John McCain will earn on an average in a year for the rest of his life after he finishes his term as the President, if he's elected? Same process as above, for "McCainEarnings".

As a reminder, all are required to enter their estimates for 1% of the two candidates' average annual earnings only, in current dollar values, after they complete their terms as the President, if elected.

The website will record and display the median value of all the earnings estimations submitted every few days on the site, as long as people continue to submit their estimations, from now till the 2008 Presidential election.

http://www.amuktrade.com is designed to help users learn, experiment and have fun with financial asset management, and pricing and trading of all types of financial assets. The website focuses on quick speculative pricing and cashless trading of large, illiquid assets like real estate.
