  • If Low Oil Prices Persist, How Will This Impact Major Oil Companies? [View article]
    Mr Ambrozewicz, interesting post! It is very difficult to have unity within
    such a large Cartel. Apparently, the sea storage had little effect on pricing and
    certainly allowed producers to continue to over-produce.

    The Communist pact on oil will, in the end, have little or no impact on production
    nor pricing, IMHO.

    Sanctions simple do not work: nations will find hungry buyers for their commodities.

  • Scary 1929 Chart Nearly One Year Later [View instapost]
    NLO, interesting and tanks for the update.

    All bets are off on the stock market, as it is being controlled
    and manipulated by the FRB.

    This week, the Central Bank, talked up the market with it's
    several timely pronouncements..

    Look for this tacit to be used in the future and particularly regarding the strengthening $.

    Six years and counting of FedZero..Now we also have a stock
    Fedmarket! Our collective future is in the hands of the hens in the Central Bank.

    Currant, you are a smart man to avoid the sector! To play it safe, one
    could wait until the next OPEXXX meeting.

    If no reductions are announced, we will see $30 goo.

  • Piketty's Envy Problem [View article]
    "To deliver social services effectively and efficiently in a nation of 320 million with about 1/5 in poverty, we need to rely on government agencies rather than private charity and neighbors. And, we know enough about management science that agencies don't need to be "uncaring and unproductive bureaucracy."

    Mr Smith, IMHO, a person whom believes in MORE and BIGGER government, is a socialist or on the left, which would include yourself, Professor Piketty and W.H. Buffet.

    Furthermore, to suggest that governmental units can and do provide
    a higher degree of efficiency than the private sector is lacking in the so-called "management science." You, like so many millions of others, love
    the MANDATED contributions, whether or not the program works..

    Please, name me a single governmental unit program (welfare) which
    has been considered a failure and discontinued?

    "This is spurious correlation without an casual connection. Other variables and trends have had a major effect on GNP growth (e.g., globalization, income redistribution upward, . . ) Numerous other examples show GNP growth improving with growth of social programs (e.g., econometric studies of multipliers with social spending.)"

    There is certainly cause and effect on GNP, as governmental units grow
    larger and amass more power..The free markets gain nothing from this
    growth but rather are harm by it..All one needs to do is the examine the decline in both America and EuroLand.

    Welfare programs provide no actual benefits to economic growth, as you claim.

    Please, provide a short list of nations, which over the past thirty years or so, have expanded welfare programs and have seen a corresponding increase in their GNP.

    For everyone you may find, I will provide one or two which have seen
    a decline in economic growth (GNP).

    Just wait and see the exploding tax increase due to CommieCare, this year.

    It was all written within the body of the "we will have to pass it to see what is inside of it." This will certainly have a drag upon America's
    growth for the coming year and 2016..There is a high likelihood of a govcession within the next 24 months.

    It will be a blessing for the current and new welfare programs going forward, however.

    Free college for our new and improved young adults...Giving, from
    our dear and beloved governmental units never end, until the end appears.

  • If Low Oil Prices Persist, How Will This Impact Major Oil Companies? [View article]
    A good read, Mr Ambrozewicz. There are many issue at play, which the
    leading Cartel members will not make public.

    This is more than just American Shale production..It involves economic
    and political issues as well.

    Frankly, they are losing no real income, as the price of oil has been unnaturally
    elevated for several years..The decline in current revenue is being funded by
    these ill gotten gains.

    It is interesting to note, that one goo minister believes supplies now
    EXCEED consumption on the order of 2 million b/p!

    This is what I have been suggesting for months and without this unbalance
    there would have been no dramatic and steep decline in pricing.

    Currant, thank you for the kind comment.

    What it means is essentially that the goo markets are resetting
    the price points and it is being driven by fundamentals rather than
    just a bear raid.

    The price point for crude has far exceeded it's real value, IMHO...Nevertheless, it was needed to drive production higher than
    world consumption.

    The spread between production and consumption had all too long favored
    the former..This resulted in triple digit oil...

    For the foreseeable future, this is over and done.
