  • Understanding The Oil Price War [View article]
    I think the author missed a huge point.

    Poll after poll demonstrated that the American people and the Obama Administration aren't interested in continuing to be involved in events in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia, whose government's continued existence RELIES on US power -- does not want the US to leave the Middle East. The best way to keep the US involved is to keep them DEPENDENT on cheap oil. THe only place that exists is from the Middle East. Destroying the US domestic shale industry will keep the US dependent on Middle East oil for decades to come.

  • Update: Seadrill's Partner Rosneft Will Postpone Drilling Of Several Arctic Projects [View article]
    It seems to me that Rosneft is in a mucher BETTER position under these conditions.

    Oil trades in USD, yet Rosneft pays most its bills in Rubles.

    So with the steep decline of the Ruble to the Dollar, Rosneft prospers.

    Apparently George is NOT a student of history.

    China has been the world's dominant economy for 18 of the last 20 centuries. What we are seeing is simply a statistical reversion to the norm.

  • Housing and the End of Upward Mobility in the U.S. [View article]
    Perhaps the theory of upward mobility was false.

    It was based on the premise that energy & natural resources would always be cheap & plentiful. Last time I checked, they are neither.

    Suburbia is turning out to be the biggest wase of resources in the history of mankind. The sooner Americans figure this out, the better off we will be.

    You cannot have a economy based on the Seinfeld Principle. Economies must ultimately make things & sell to others to be successful. We must have an educated workforce that knows how to problem solve and make things.
