However, planetary and House rulerships, depending upon subtle likenesses harken back to ancient magical/mystical practices. Why should Gold decline when Saturn (contraction) enters the sign of Leo, ruled by the Sun, with rulership over Gold? The day that Saturn entered Leo in Apparent Right Ascension (measurement used by Astronomers), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) announced they would sell tons and tons over months and months, and Gold experienced the only Limit Down day during that year! Why should such a thing occur? We do not know, but it does!
Anyone willing to pay a deposit could put forward a proposal to become policy. Two betting markets then open - one predicting welfare if we adopt the proposal and the other predicting welfare if we don't. The basic rule would then be: a day after market prices clearly estimate national welfare to be higher given the proposal than without it, that proposal is adopted. If it is adopted, the deposit is refunded 10 times over and investments pay off years later, after national welfare is measured. Speculators can of course sell their entitlement to a share of any pay-off in the future and those who buy low and sell high are rewarded for improving the prediction.
