Editor:

For Barack Obama, and for Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan, it is fairly easy to quickly name the “messes” they assumed over the past 68 years upon being sworn into office. You don’t have to be a historian or a researcher to recall frequent references to sweeping events, such as recessions, wars, assassinations, resignations, revolutions, and other economic and social upheavals -- often portrayed or symbolized in vivid news images and often mentioned as well in newspaper and magazine headlines.  . . .

PG: If the oil is based on a future that may cause the price to rise, does the price drop if the prediction is incorrect? I haven't seen it yet. This why there are record breaking profits every quarter. I understand that ... More ›

Just as in a drought, oil futures are based on an assumption that the price will rise or fall depending on a predicted circumstance happening or not happening. For instance, a war in the middle east or the easing of restrictions ... More ›

PG: Those are the Admirals words. A futures market price for hay would be artificial. What would you base it on? That the drought would end? There is no way to predict that. The price of a bale of hay increased due to the ... More ›

Ex Tiger.....I was using WW II as an example of the admiral's mistaken idea that the submarine would signal the end of the battleship usefulness. The strength of the dollar has a major impact on the price of oil. If ... More ›
