    know much about fraud, and little about Tarot reading.  A genuine reading may be less accurate than modern economics ;-), but it does not start out with the intention of "giving the rube what he wants to hear".  Most often, the Oracle finds herself giving said rube the LAST information he wants to hear, which is why real fortunetellers are often run out of town on a rail.  Same thing happens to economists who dare to write what the Elite Consensus wants to hear.  They find themselves unemployed very quickly, like drug abuse researchers who report that marijuana isn't particularly harmful.

      and next we feature ghosts and mediums.  

      If your Tarot reader is making money, then your Tarot reader has a reason to believe in the whole enterprise.  Likewise your ghost finder and your medium.  No scientific basis exists for Tarot.
