I've been scratching my head forever why I should be concerned when oil prices drop or why we are killing so many people in oil rich countries. The answer: The petro dollar. It's unfortunate they used music off the license free conspiracy catalog but I guess it makes it more entertaining. The guy is in serious in need of a limiter plugin but it provides another explanation. I don't think this is a partisan issue. Those in power won't deny it. They won't even talk about it. The short version: Nixon took us off the gold standard and then in almost mob fashion the US government convinced all oil producing nations all oil must be bought with US dollars. This is largely responsible for US wealth and if the value of oil collapses so does the value of the US dollar. Is anybody disputing this?
