2019: World Economy Is Reaching Growth Limits; Expect Low Oil Prices, Financial Turbulence
Gary Anderson 1/9/2019 4:36:46 PM

My concern is that #China has room to grow but #Trump seeks to limit that growth. #Energy is important, but is not the only factor. Trump's tariff war is an attempt to bully the weak, but China is far from weak. It is America that is weak. Trump is miscalculating. Here is proof:

How To Invest In Energy With The Middle East On The Brink
Abe Jouejati 12/2/2016 3:27:46 PM

Sectarian clashes and international trade restrictions have tended to depress economic conditions across an unstable #MiddleEast. However, Abu Dhabi is on the cusp of breakthrough technology in the #energy sector with the first green city "Masdar City."

Considering large #oil revenues of the Gulf governments, they could expand renewable energy sector, whereby, reducing dependency on the unstable oil market. #Solar energy, kinetic energy and hydro-energy are viable and abundant in the region. This transition is likely to take time to come into effect, but the rewards in R&D, infrastructure, employment, investment and exports are likely to trigger an expansion of some sort.

The Subprime U.S. Economy: Disintegrating Due To Subprime Auto, Housing, Bond & Energy Debt

I appreciate the thoughtful reply. While bonds presently have a higher rating than gold, I don't believe this will be true several years down the road. Furthermore, there are a shortage of bonds, because of the massive #liquidity injections by #CentralBanks. Bonds can be in short supply when Central Banks print money to buy them.

Actually, the #Fed and Central Banks are running out of assets to buy. This is why several analysts believe the next Central Bank BULLET will be outright #HelicopterMoney.

Lastly, the production of energy is different than comparing outstanding #EnergyDerivatives to the Interest Rate Derivative Market. While it's true that the Interest Rate Derivative Market totally overwhelms anything else by several orders of magnitude, I would like to kindly remind you financial instruments are worthless without the burning of energy. Burning #energy translates to economic activity. Profitable economic activity translates to a functioning financial system.

When U.S. and global expensive oil production declines in earnest, this will cause a serious dislocation in the Financial System that will result in collapse. Unfortunately, this will be a depressionary collapse we never come out of.

Of course.. this is my humble opinion.
