  • Senate Keystone supporters cling to hope for negotiated deal with Obama [View news story]
    Democrats are interested in getting re-elected. They have a sugar daddy donor that has paid $100 million to Obama and the democrats to keep it out of the Senate's agenda.

    He made his money in European energy sector so that may have something to do with it.

    It is less clear why anyone in America is for LNG projects other than America is flush with nat gas because of fracking and there is no place to put it. I suppose you must need to follow the money.

  • U.S., Russia, Saudi Arabia: Who Is Going To Win In The Oil Price Stand-Off? [View article]
    Richard Zeit, Thanks for the article. It generated some interesting comments and was an enjoyable read.

    In answer to your question:
    Who Is Winning And Who Is Losing Market Share?
    If you divide the world into three parts I pick OCEANIA.
    That is my final answer.

    At least until someone perfects Cold Fusion as the ultimate energy source we are all stuck in this commodity market for the foreseeable future with continued world conflict as the normal course of events.

    @Rich in Quebec,
    No sir, Absolutely NOT. Your economic system did not start with government (Not communism, not socialism, and not capitalism). In the beginning self-sufficient people seeking a better life and an idea went out in the Canadian wilderness toward that end. They later came together to form villages and towns and appointed leaders to help with security and as they grew into larger population formed governments. Free market economics came FIRST when two or more people came together to provide and exchange goods and services with each other.
    Governments and the perversions of governments like Feudalism, Socialism, Communism, Fascism and all the other isms came later. A guy called Adam Smith in 1776 first tried to define how free market economics worked. Later Karl Marx came along and defined Capitalism and called it an evil form of government. Now people like you and others like you equate free market economics (free market capitalism) as government. I don’t except the chicken and the egg analogy. I don’t like any of the isms if the word “free” is excluded. That leaves only one possible ism and sadly it has been disappearing from the America culture where it started since 1910.

    Thanks, Rich in Quebec

    I did not say government has no purpose only that they do not "produce" anything. Ask this question... Who funded the Holyoke, Mass. Gas and Electric? Who pays for your public school education? Who pays for the Catholic nuns regardless of their politics or religious beliefs.

    Who built the city of Quebec? Where did the money come from?

    Oh how perceptive of you! That is exactly the point. Maybe this is the problem filipo. You want a common currency but don't speak European and have no idea of history.

    Wow! I think we need to check our education system. History must have been dropped from the curriculum.

    No deals with the Obama administration. Elections have consequences. Pass the bill and let Obama veto it. Work on building a congressional collusion to override the Veto. Let those that oppose the pipeline explain to the American people why they are against cheaper Energy costs and American jobs and let the next election speak for itself!

    filipo,

    I am not sure what country you represent, but last time I checked Ukraine is part of NATO as is America and most countries in the IMF. How many $billions or €billions will War World III cost? Your type of thinking is historically exactly the problem. Fix it now or pay for it big time later. If you want I can translate this directed comment in France or Russian, I don't speak European.

    What the Hell are you talking about? Your government just spent $4 Trillion since 2009 $1 Trillion ear marked for infrastructure improvements of which only 9% used for that purpose the rest going to redistribution to non-producers and Democrat cronies for numerous failed alternative energy projects. Your elk owned all three branches of government for 7 years and did nothing but screw up the nations healthcare system and it is the Republicans that are anti-science that you blame? GIVE ME A BREAK!

    News flash... Government has NEVER produced anything Democrat or Republicans in control. Manhattan Projects come from the private sector when government gets out of the way and there is an an incentive for people to success, something that will never come from a tax and spend redistributive governments of today.

  • Lenovo to bring Motorola phones back to China [View news story]
    The latest generation of Motorola phones introduced in Oct. 2014 in America using the Snapdragon 805 processors are excellent. They are as good or better than anything offered in smartphone technology to date. I believe Lenovo is the best company to help their whole owners subsidiary Motorola stay relevant in smartphone droid device sector. It will be interesting to see how well they do in China.

    I have no position in Lenovo, but am very familiar with their current Laptop and Motorola cell phone technology.

  • Google shutting down Russian office [View news story]
    Communism and Socialism FAILS everywhere it is tried! Sadly it takes generations for their failures to become apparent to its people. Capitalism is the best economic system for the efficient distribution of scarce resources. Shortages are the canary in the coal mine.

  • Apple reports earnings on January 27 [View news story]
    The geopolitical impact of oil on the market in general is only temporary. Apple's stock price is ultimately tied to shareholder value and continued earnings growth guidance. What will interest me more is to see if the smart money in the market sells on the earnings news or pushes the stock higher.

  • Update: Supreme Court Of Chile Rejects Barrick Gold's Appeal On Pascua-Lama [View article]
    What more is there to says about Barrick's development of Pascua-Lama? It has been a black hole for shareholder value and Barrick's management team must salvage what it can on behave of shareholders and the company. Clearly the location of the project will impact the source of regional ground water and the population is unhappy about this aspect of project.

    It seems to me that the Chilean government and its people want it both ways. They want to attract private foreign investment, but do not want to clearly define the perimeters of what they are willing to give up for that economic benefit. All mining of natural resources has some impact on the environment.
