ok, I am very modest. I am satisfied with simply feeling much better since Obama has won his presidency. In other words I am in much better mood. And I boldly assume that billions share my feelings. The question is, can you put a price tag on good mood? Or rather the question is, should one put a price tag on it?

Obama has won his presidency when our global environment had been damaged possibly already beyond repair - sorry to say, responsibility falls mostly on US shoulders in my judgment - along with Europe and countries of the northern hemisphere – and when economy collapsed all over our planet, mainly because of bad US bank loans, so I won’t expect miracles from Obama, but as much as I can judge, he does everything that a president in his situation can. And meanwhile it matters a lot that he says the right things (for instance about solidarity) and shows the right intentions and openness for cooperation with nations of our planet.
