The 2007 Elections (Introduction)

December 1, 2007

The 2007 statewide elections in Louisiana were a watershed event. Not only did they establish Republicans as legitimate players at the Capitol for the first time, but a lot of new faces from both parties were elected to statewide offices and to the Legislature. However, while some of the conditions that created this sea change in the Louisiana political landscape have been in the making for years, other conditions could be tied to specific events, like the passage of term-limits in 1995 and the massive destruction brought about by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005.

It is under this context that we will, in upcoming weeks, analyze the 2007 elections, as well as what we think will happen in the future. Next week, we will discuss the context that, before a single ballot was cast, played a major factor in the 2007 elections.

Speculators take positions on rising gold price.

Australasian Business Intelligence December 11, 2005 Byline: John Wasiliev Dec 11, 2005 (The Australian Financial Review – ABIX via COMTEX) — The gold price is currently trading at around $US525 an ounce, and some analysts believe that it could trade above $US600/oz in 2006. AMP Capital Investors’ Shane Oliver believes that the gold price will continue to rally in the next year, citing factors such as supply constraints and the trend for investors to buy gold as a hedge against a downturn in the US dollar. Bron Suchecki of the Perth Mint says moves by gold producers to reduce their hedging has been a major driver of the gold price rally in 2005, although he believes that some gold mining companies may opt to adopt hedging positions again if the gold price continues its upward momentum. go to web site gold price history go to web site gold price history
