    Mindless blather.

    The world is in an oll glut. Its quite possible that oil prices will go still lower before market equilibrium is restored.

    I have a technical target for WTI at $32, but that will probably coincide with global recession.

    More “glut” please.

    One global recession coming your way. China is going down and UPS just announced their data shows the US economy is noticeably slowing.

    Plant, my own cyclical work strongly suggests that the US economy stalled coincident with the onset of the crash in the price of oil (particularly the energy, energy-related transports, and industrial sectors), and that private final sales per capita have decelerated to a recession-like rate in Q4 2014-Q1 2015 not unlike in winter-spring 2008 and spring-summer 2001.

    The pattern looks a lot like 1986, but we have record debt to wages and GDP; real GDP is growing at half the rate; real wages for the bottom 80-90% are flat to negative (and worse after debt service and illth care costs); there are unprecedented debt-induced asset bubbles everywhere; and we are laboring under Gilded Age- and Roaring Twenties-like wealth and income inequality with a record low for wages as a share of GDP.

    The stock market, CEOs/CFOs, the Fed, and virtually ALL eCONomists missed the cyclical turn, as always.

    I suspect history is rhyming yet again.

    As petroleum’s ability to power the economy declines, the economy’s ability to pay for it declines:

    The price of petroleum has now dropped to a level where its full life cycle production cost can not be recovered. Producers can no longer afford to replace reserves that are being extracted.
