The Republicans have stated that they will not close government down again so as to avoid the ‘fiscal cliff’ and a potential credit rating downgrade again. Let’s hope that this will in fact be the case, but wait to see if it is.
Oil prices continue to fall in what is a global stimulus for the world’s economies. Saudi Arabia, in giving the U.S. and the world cheaper oil, as well as continuing its high production levels, is undermining U.S. oil production from ‘fracking’, through prices that continue to fall. It will take some time before this impacts U.S. oil production. In the average consumer’s pocket the fall in the oil price gives him over 1.5% extra disposable income.
History shows an indirect link between the oil and the gold price. In 1971 the oil price was at $8 a barrel. It then rose to $35 a barrel while gold moved from $42 an ounce up to $160 at the same time. Gold then went on to rise much higher because of the impact on the monetary system, inflation and value of the dollar the oil price brought about. The current fall in the oil price implies deflation and a hardening dollar, but with the vast amount of excess dollars now in circulation globally the value of the dollar is not likely to continue to harden for too much longer.
