Re: Oil below $60 per barrel

Mister t,

Re: Oil below $60 per barrel

There's one economic theory floating around which proposes there is a maximum price point for oil. I think Gail Tverberg is among those theorists who believe that the world economy ceases to function properly if oil is priced much higher than $100 [more]

Re: Oil below $60 per barrel

It's hard to tell what's happening, and it's hard to believe an oil surplus is solely responsible.

Re: Fresh guidance from UPS disappoints

Let's do some simple math, just to gain a little perspective.

UPS says they will make shareholder distributions of $30B over the next five years (2015-2019). They also said during the investor conference that at least $15B would be used for [more]

Re: Bernie Sanders on Bill Maher

But they are not socialists. As far as I can tell, they are the two most visible politicians willing to fight the widespread corruption in politics and business. That's not socialism. It's truth, justice and the American Way.
