Due to a number of deadlines coming up for projects on my to-do list, I likely won’t be doing much writing for the website in the coming few weeks. The website is a hobby that I enjoy very much, but it takes a back seat to putting bread on the table.
However, there is a lot going on over the next month or so that is worthy of discussion, so I’m going to leave an Open Thread up every Monday for items of pressing interest. I’ll be keeping an eye on the comments, and throwing my two cents in as warranted.
This week’s topic: The Dollar, M3 and the Iranian Oil Bourse. Will the US attack Iran over the Bourse? Is this the death knell for the dollar? Or is it simply much ado about nothing?
Here are two excellent articles for reference, one on each side of the issue
The Proposed Iranian Oil Bourse, and the Demise of the US Dollar
by Dr. Krassimir Petrov, Ph.D.
Oil Priced in Euros Won’t Matter
Looking forward to the comments.
