That is an absurd idea all around. I assume he wants the government to dictate prices by law to gouge the American consumer. I’m sure Putin would approve, but I don’t.

Oil leaving the US should be taxed to raise its prices.

We live in a world devoid of capitalism and democracy. Free markets no longer exist. Reckless Keynesian central bank interventions have destroyed all market and risk pricing mechanisms. As far as oil goes, lets watch all the HY bonds default – or will the Fed’s moral hazard mandate allow a “secret” bailout? Euro-zone 10-yr bonds trading below 1% is insanity when many of these countries are insolvent. All ponzi schemes end badly and this one is no exception. Prepare accordingly.

We’ve been paying what the consumers have been willing to pay by the industry pushing prices until consumption declined. We have survived without any significant inflationary after effects. Is OPEC maintaining production to force out the recent domestic production? Well, eventually we will see who blinks first. Personally, I believe the Alberta tar sands and domestic production will bury OPEC.

The money is squandered to run its socialistic lifestyle…paying for healthcare,low cost housing and so forth. Eventually we will run out of oil…but not yet. T. Aziz had a great suggestion in his day when he suggested $70 a barrel..All of you speculators and Jews has in mind was personal greed. You have made your money. Now leave us poor people be.

Just as fossil fuels were subsidized, the development of alternate energy sources should proceed despite temporarily “cheap oil” so that we can make the transition smoothly to a sustainable economy and a viable environment. Our children and grandchildren will thank us.
