    Obama was certainly a phenomenon ,for many people around the world.I remember the scenes of jubilation in Indonesia and Kenya when Obama was elected also there was tangible goodwill here in India as well.Obama's win proved for once one thing that it was not only the white man that could one day hold the mantle of" most powerful man in the world".Obama's diplomacy may have touched raw nerves in many governments around the world but the very idea that the son of a Kenyan man with the middle name Hussien could be president of united states has touched the hearts of many, i believe this article is proof of the goodwill one man can generate.

    This sounds like very fishy science or economics.

    I just dont know what methodology this guy uses to associate a "dollar amount" to a "brand value". It all sounds very fluffy to me.

    If some of you economics gurus could explain this - I would certainly like to hear it.
