    "Josh Brown has a look at at issues facing that country. Among them, 60% of the population is under 30 and the unemployment rate of 11% is less than reliable."

     

    The standard issue facing the Saudis: In the 21st century, is it respectable to be led by the most ruthless herder left standing?

     

    Another point: Can you schedule "days of rage?" Shouldn't rage just explode?

    Who benefits from the day of rage?
    Russia as a second largest exporter of oil.
    Hedge funds expecting the turmoil therefore an oil hike.
    Losers?Perhaps for a short while US and other international companies owning the drilling platforms.
    Who is behind the disturbances?
    The same ones who benefit certainly not the ones on the streets these are just the tools.

    The fundamentals are always the right direction despite the media manipulation by the powerful.
    Who benefits from the changes is the dark horse which is never published by the media.
    If something seems to be entirely illogical it is certainly a product of a manipulation and collusion with media.
