Oil dropped from (around) $65 to $45 between 1/1 and the morning of 3/6 before the Russians fired the first shot across the bow like an idiot drunk Captainant, stumbling into a conversation with someone he doesn’t know. End of 3/6, $40, 3/9 after Saudi response - $30. From there, all COVID. My point is, crude follows supply/demand fundamentals. Yes, sovereigns may cut supply but it’s economic and not political in nature. COVID crushing demand was the story, not some short term pissing match by idiots who totally walked it back one month later. 

It must be a terrible burden for you to be the smartest guy on this message board.

Everything follows supply/demand fundamentals

Everything is heavily influenced by supply and the demand in a perfect market economy. After that - well, it's more akin to religion and philosophy.

For example - Adam Smith - a leading thinker on the philosophy of economic theory in the Age of the Enlightenment. He questioned every assumption in order to form a perfect society on behalf of people who had known little other than Monarchs and cabals of dastardly powerful concentrations of wealth. 

Adam Smith was a progressive economist. He advanced future-oriented policies - not policies of the moment. He showed the wealthy they could keep their money. Having passed that test, it was up to him to show the wealthy they would make more money (and so would some of the less fortunate). We have a similar imbalance of wealth today and it is extreme. Wealth, not income. When Adam Smith wrote The Wealth of Nations he believed he solved this issue forever. But today we see a mixed market and tribalism descending on nations. The world much less market-oriented. Some argue neoliberal economic policies caused this extreme wealth imbalance through its insistence on austerity programs that punish those with less to spare. What would Adam Smith say? 

I would say that is appropriate for a DT thread. It is more philosophy than politics. News organizations used to talk about issues - such as the economic consequences of austerity programs on wealth. WSJ still does. NYT will, but fluffy. It is not adversarial since it is ultimately discussing wealth, political structures that protect wealth, and how mainstreet might fare with a tweek to economic policies.

Some of the DT welcome-wagon is about as friendly as a two-headed snake.. I am sure they mean well.

It is a college board where such ideas are regularly discussed - even in the business school. 

Economics and Philosophy - DT or CR?

 

Quote

(Adam Smith (1723 - 1790) was a Scottish philosopher and political economist of the Age of Enlightenment and a key figures in the Scottish Enlightenment. He is widely cited as the father of modern economics, and sometimes as the father of modern Capitalism, and his magnum opus, "The Wealth of Nations", is considered the first modern work of classical economics. His metaphor of the invisible hand of the free market has been of untold influence in the development of laissez faire economics and modern Capitalism and Individualism, but Smith's work has been almost as influential in other areas of Political Philosophy, including Utilitarianism, Liberalism, Libertarianism, Socialism and Marxism.)

It depends on who is discussing, unfortunately.  Should be able to be discussed in DT but it will undoubtedly devolve into tribal CR (or more recently DT) shit flinging.

Chicks man! lol 

I thought the only "chicks" on surly were dudes pretending to be a slutty girl for fetish reasons or something. Or dumb chicks who make crappy chili or who have forehead horns.

Crappy chili? I am offended. I think there are a few other legit female posters outside myself. Don’t have horns. Haven’t met any of the other female posters so I can’t say if they have horns or not.

Nope. No idea he had a cousin.  Besides the people who know me on here know I’m not related to either.
