we produce our own oil, OPEC sets the price for oil, so if the US goes by OPEC pricing, then domestic oil producers are not blamed for pricing too
high. The higher OPEC prices go, the more money the oil companies make. 99% im pretty sure dont own oil wells. If war happens, then the economy
grows producing products to support war, producing taxes, that pay for war. Our money is based on paper, ( the economic strength) or ability to pay
debt. If everyone is working, and getting paid, then everyone is spending! Russia wants some of that, so does china. The current economic system is
strained, so in order to fix it there has to be a demand created. The normal demand would be consumer based. The consumer base is out of money
depending on govt finance to eat. What is better? Give a man food, or give a job to a man to feed his family?
