    Crude oil futures rose 3.5 percent in mid-afternoon trading on Wednesday, following official data earlier in the day showing a 3.4-million drop in crude inventories and a fall in crude output to 8.8 million barrels per day, the lowest since the fourth quarter of 2014. June deliveries of West Texas Intermediate (WTI) were up US$1.57, or 3.5 percent, settling at US$46.23 per barrel on the New York exchange. This jump is higher than any closing price the commodity has seen since November of last year.
  • This Suggests An Oil Price Recovery Might Be On Its Way

    Oil futures prices are below $38 but there is a glimmer of hope in EIA’s Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO) released today–world consumption increased in November and supply fell. OPEC did what everyone expected last week–nothing–and oil markets reacted badly. Brent futures fell 15% from $47.44 before the OPEC meeting on Friday (December 4) to $40.25 today (December 8). I have been saying that oil prices have been too high based on fundamentals and need to move lower in order for oil markets to balance. Now we may be seeing the beginnings of that trend. In November, world liquids supply fell...

    As it appears GDP will be seasonally adjusted again, I find myself wondering just one thing: why? Earlier GDP figures showed the US economy on the brink of recession for the first two quarters of this year. Now, with more fudging going on, who knows what it will show. The government appears to be following the Hollywood mantra: if you can bend perception enough, it will become reality. Look no further than the Federal Reserve, which continues to raise expectations of higher interest rates in the second half of this year, in hopes of inducing faster growth.

    The oil price collapse is not over yet. It is more likely that the Brent price could fall back into the mid-$50 range than that it will continue to rise toward $70 per barrel. That is because oil prices have risen based on sentiment alone. The fundamentals of supply and demand indicate a dismal reality: oil prices will fall and may fall hard in the near term. Our present situation is like that of the cartoon character Wile E. Coyote. He routinely ran off of a cliff and as long as he didnt look down, everything was fine. But as...

    (CNSNews.com) - Solar power, which President Barack Obama promoted in his State of the Union Address, accounted for 0.2 percent of the U.S. electricity supply in the first nine months of 2013, according to data published by the U.S. government's Energy Information Administration. That is up from the 0.02 percent of the total electricity supply that solar power sources provided in 2008, the last calendar year before Obama took office. Now, one of the biggest factors in bringing more jobs back is our commitment to American energy, Obama said in the State of the Union. The all-of-the-above energy strategy I...

    What would be the incentive for increased consumer demand for purchase of an Obamacare Insurance Policy instead of purchasing a policy from a private insurance company? After one year of competition on an open insurance market, how would Obamacare rate in terms of new policies, customer satisfaction, customer privacy, customer recommendations to others, and profit margins? After five years of insurance sales, would Obamacare still be operating at a net financial loss? Could a non-mandatory Obamacare be packaged for sale to a private Insurance Company? What would the the Fair Market Value of the privatization sale of Obamacare?

The European Network of Scientists for Social and Environmental Responsibility, which consists of more than 90 scientists, academics, and physicians, released a statement Monday in response to sweeping claims that GM products are safe.

  • Demand Exceeds Supply In 90% Of America's Major Housing Markets

    Price appreciation is largely driven by the degree to which demand exceeds supply. While the best short-term measure of the housing demand/supply balance is months of supply of homes on the market, the best long-term measure is the ratio of household formations to new home construction. Since household formation data is highly unreliable, we use job growth as the best proxy because there are typically 1.2 jobs per household. Affordability, confidence, and demographic factors determine whether that household rents or buys. We have a great demand model that estimates that demand by price and rent range. Consider the following: *...

    The Environmental Protection Agency will require oil refiners to blend 16.55 billion gallons of renewable fuels into the nations gasoline supply this year as part of its efforts to spur new fuel technology and decrease fossil fuel dependence. Nearly eight months past the legal due date, the EPA announced its yearly blending targets under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) on Tuesday. Renewable fuel associations applauded the announcement, but the oil and gas industry criticized the agency for continuing to push a broken system. The EPAs blending requirements include 6 million gallons of the cellulosic biofuel, which is made from woodchips....

    I now agree that its fruitless to give the benefit of the doubt to people who are so obviously corrupt, so clearly malevolent, so bent on hurting innocent people for their own sick gain, Aurora Sentinel editor Dave Perry wrote in an April 25 editorial. No more due process in the clear-cut case of insidious terrorism. When the facts are so clearly before all Americans, for the whole world to see, why bother with this countrys odious and cumbersome system of justice? he asked. Send the guilty monsters directly to Guantanamo Bay for all eternity and let them rot in...

    The British pork industry is collapsing, and its a story that should serve as a warning to all of us. Why? Because the agents of its demise have the entire West in their crosshairs. The numbers are staggering. With a pig herd halved during the last decade, Britain has gone from producing 110 percent of its domestic consumption of pork to only 40 percent. This is due to many of the nations pig farmers having left the business, and theyre poised to be joined by 100 more this year, which represents 10% of Britain's small to medium-sized producers, reports the...

"To me, that seems to be an injustice." Say what? Neither justice nor a degree entitles a person to a higher income. That's one of the fundamental truths of the labor market, and people in Williston and elsewhere should understand why.

Bloggingstocks' Joseph Lazaro outlined the theory that it might back on 1 August 2009, shortly after the U.S. federal minimum wage reached its current level of $7.25 per hour (emphasis ours): ... the U.S. Federal Reserve will be monitoring prices and costs to see if the higher minimum wage is creating inflation havoc at a time when U.S. businesses least need another concern to deal with. Businesses have enough to worry about; and some are struggling just to maintain operations for another quarter or two -- the recession has been that damaging. But...

    ...A supply glut has pressured natural gas futures for most of 2011, as production from dense rock formations (shale) through novel techniques of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing remain robust, thereby overwhelming demand. As a matter of fact, natural gas prices have dropped more than 25% from this years peak of about $5.00 per million Btu (MMBtu) in June to the current level of around $3.70 (referring to spot prices at the Henry Hub, the benchmark supply point in Louisiana). Of late, a mild autumn weather has driven a string of above-average inventory builds, indicating a grossly oversupplied...

    An exhaustive report by Standard Chartered predicts that gold will more than triple to $5,000 an ounce because of a lack of supply, not just because of a surge in demand that most bullion bugs cite in their bullish calls. There are very few large gold mines set to commence operation in the next five years, said Standards analyst Yan Chen in a report Monday. The limited new supply comes at a time when central banks have turned from being net sellers to significant net buyers of gold. The result, in our view, will be a gold market in deficit,...

    Friday, May 6, 2011 Rare Earths Seen Growing Less Rare SYDNEY (Dow Jones)--Demand for rare earth elements that has driven up prices more than tenfold since 2009 is likely to be met by a surplus of supply by 2013, as Western companies start up new mines to compete with the Chinese firms that now dominate the market, Goldman Sachs analysts predicted Thursday. The forecast calls into question the sustainability of the current boom in rare earths, a suite of 17 elements used in products from high-powered magnets, and fuel refining to energy-efficient light bulbs and mobile phone screens, as well...
