Doug Vining OPEC to the rescue

Could OPEC inadvertently rescue the global economy by pushing energy prices down quicker than market forces? This article tends to suggest that oil could drop well before our MindBullet timeline!

Doug Vining Oil heading for a wild ride

When we published this MindBullet not even a month ago, we were pretty sure that oil would drop, but we didn't expect it to be this fast or this far. Perhaps our scenario wasn't crazy enough!

Bank of America forecasts deep structural shifts that will have profound consequences:
"The free market will now set the global cost of oil, leading to a new era of wild price swings and disorderly trading that benefits only the Mid-East petro-states with deepest pockets such as Saudi Arabia. If so, the weaker peripheral members such as Venezuela and Nigeria are being thrown to the wolves."

Doug Vining This time is different

Bloomberg is picking up on something we hinted at in our MindBullet on the subject of falling oil prices. It's not just a blip in the market. There are fundamental changes underway. The longer term scenario is a shift of power and economic prosperity that was unthinkable, until now.

Doug Vining Collapsing commodities

Was I right, is the 'supercycle' over? Platinum is now below $1,000 with gold not far behind, and oil remains stubbornly below $60.

What's the scenario for the near future - boom or bust?

Doug Vining Is it too soon or too late to panic?

This article says that the current slump in commodities is more than the end of a cycle - rather it's a signal that fossil fuels are going to collapse permanently. Perhaps the fundamental shift in energy economics is the real reason!
