Consider sixty years ago when having a garden was considered a normal pastime, if the economy tanked, you still had food, food could be traded for just about anything. Nowadays a Florida Judge ruled it illegal to grow food on the front of your property. Is their an agenda here ?

Aha but there is peak oil, it's the declining energy returned over energy invested values of our fossil fuels. For example; texas sweet crude used to take 1 barrel of oil to deliver over 30 barrels of oil to market, and now shale oil plays take 1 barrel of oil to deliver 5 or less barrels of oil to market.

How does this work out? When you see oil spike to $200 a barrel and US energy companies still cannot produce a profit because the cost to produce that oil rises in lock step with the increasing price of oil.

See these graphs, they are self explanatory:

Seems to me that Meltdown and Spectre could be good candidates, especially if they significantly slow down HFT speeds.

The end of the petro dollar, when the biggest importer of oil which is China, Pays Russia for oil and Gas in Gold backed Yuan. It should have the effect of inflating the fiat backed currencies, and effectively doing something nasty. Because all the oil exporters will want paying in Gold. American crude oil still needs to be mixed with the thicker stuff, so where 's the money coming from to buy it.
