    What? Restricting supply won't affect the price of oil?

    Restricting the supply of any comodity will cause an increased price. Even one "globally priced and traded".

    Those evil speculators believe that it does. Which, of course, causes them to buy future contracts in the hopes of making money and causing the price to be higher.

    that's a good point, everyone knows that supply has nothing to do with price, and that futures traders never try to figure out what the supply situation will look like years from now.

    yup. had they only waited for ole Henry Ford to come along they could have had a horseless carriage for much less.

    right now the "alternative cars" are a toy; much like the original cars. they are something for the wealthy to show off - but the demand and the price are not currently conducive for them to become a mass-transit vehicle.



    you know, it's hilarious, but this is the exact same example that Thomse Sowell uses when he destroys the argument that international free trade ("offshoring") increases unemployment.
    That's about the weakest response I ever heard.

    Capitalize product names in your posts in order to prevent misunderstandings.

    And reply to posts with relevant responses.

    lithium batteries have dropped in price by two-third since I first started pricing packs.

    If it wasn't for all those silly rich people and their toys, Ford would have had no demand for his product. For an "economy" guy, your understanding of the concept of early adopters and their influence on demand is lacking. Or not.

    And you never came up with a cite for your 1894 date(no typo).

    I know you have a job to do, but you should stick with those subjects you have some command of.

    Stick with complex economics, where your charges will simply take your word for it.

    On the subject of alternative energy and transportation, your propaganda is showing.

    Price, IMO, is the smaller issue. It is COST that is the larger issue....what does it COST us to subsidize oil and make its daughter products artificially low in price? We "police" the Middle East on behalf of rich Arab countries so we can have continued access to their oil. The govts of those countries should be writing checks to our military, big checks.

    And everyone knows opec will cut production if we up ours to the point it keeps prices fixed.

    Oh and you are aware that the Saudis have been injecting water into their wells to speed up produright, right?

    So one day saltwater is gonna start suddenly coming up instead of oil.

    They'll know they're out when this happens. Completely out. Surprise!

    Ryans plan lol?

    We can wait 10 years for savings?

    Can you lol?

    Getting to politics, neither Obama, or Ryan really tackle anything... Certainly not their approval numbers

    I tell you what

    Gives Obama a nice card, populist (especially that 6 grand senior thing, gold)

    But that's my favorite thing, I don't support either side

    Have fun on your partisan merrygoround!

    The rest of the world is laughing!

    At both sides lol!

    Stay up.
