I also commented on the Chinese astrology perception of 2009 The Year of the Ox.
The Ox is not extravagant, and the thought of living off credit cards or being in debt, makes them nervous. They dont like risk and a generally wary of new trends.
As I told the audience, I think there are many OX attributes that we are all likely to need to meet the challenges of the year to come.
