What will happen to the world?

What will happen to the world?

Oil prices continued to rise. If a few weeks ago the price of a barrel of Brent crude oil was below $ 25, now a new psychological mark has been overcome.


A barrel has crossed the bar at $ 35 and is preparing for further growth.

At the moment, the price is kept in the region of this particular value.



This growth has been going on since the exporting countries began to reduce oil production due to the signing of a new OPEC + deal. As you know, for the first time such a deal was attended by such producing countries as, for example, the United States and Canada. They did not just take part, but pledged to reduce oil production - a significant reduction. At the same time, the US authorities noted that they are doing this to restore the balance of the world oil market.

Economists around the world are trying to guess what will happen to the barrel and the entire global economy in the coming months. After all, the world, by and large, survived such that in stories there has never been, including the fall in oil prices for individual suppliers to negative values.

On the Day TV channel, Valentin Katasonov, doctor of economic sciences, expresses his opinion on economic events in the country and the world:

    On the seas, on the waves ... of our memory, for example.
    The world will survive, but some countries will not suffer minor disasters.
    I don’t want to be in this sad list!

      "What will happen to the world?"
      A man imagines himself omnipotent .... and thinks that it is he who plans his life .... Hmm ... One small deviation, even with the same virus or weather change, tsunami, the quantity and quality of gases on the planet, drying out rivers, lakes, desertification and so on - and now there is already no man .... and his world .... How arrogantly he planned and predicted - "What will happen to the world?"

          what will happen ... it’s good that I won’t see it. I lived at the best time, was born in the early 60s, was young at the best time in the 80s, there was great music, there was almost everything in the shops, well, I bought vidakas and TVs overnight at the store, but it was interesting to Live! not now.

    The world is NEVER the same. Changes have ALWAYS been, are and will be-
    war. revolution. pandemics. The issue on a scale is small or even global.

    To consider this crisis only from the economic side is very one-sided. Apparently, we must first admit that the world is undergoing a redivision of the world. And here not only redistribution in the economic sphere, but also in the social, military, even if you want a geographical one. In fact, what is happening now is the Third World War. And this crisis has affected all spheres of people's lives: medical, educational, financial and so on ...
    The point is not the price per barrel, and not the economic and industrial decline in general, but that the issue of restructuring the world way of life has been brewing for a long time.
    Already perhaps a wretched or paralyzed one does not understand that how they lived before all this, the world will not live.
    As for oil, the question of alternative energy sources has been acute for a very long time. Call me a pacifist, but I very often think about how far humanity would have developed if all that money for wars, weapons, etc. had been spent looking for new sources of nutrition, for medicine, for the development of materials that didn’t so dirty the planet ...
    Leading countries are developing, for example, super advanced missile defense systems ... but the Chelyabinsk meteorite then the whole system stupidly missed. We are at war with each other, but at some point, a brick can fly in, and all our fuss and feuds will be covered with a copper basin, and after a few hundred millions, some humanoid who lives after all this will talk about us as we are talking about dinosaurs.

      I share your views. It is disgusting for me daily to encounter "morally wretched" people who consider it their duty to burn another piece of the planet with a bonfire and to pollute a clean corner of nature with plastic waste. It is more profitable for us to administer the city to fine (intimidate with fines) people who go outside without medical masks than to restore order in the district.

        It’s disgusting for me to encounter “morally wretched” people every day,

        People drove themselves into this idiocy, in which not only anti-human principles reign, but in general, the desire for suicide. Moreover, this is an aspiration at all levels of our world order, starting with man, as part of something larger and ending with states.
        For a long time there is no MAN-CREATOR, but there is a human consumer. This is a fact of today's realities. In the 18th century, a lawyer could invent a steam locomotive (having no academic background in this topic), and now set such a task for the same lawyer, priest, or office worker, and nothing will happen. This degradation of man as an inventor, innovator, and practical scientist did not begin in the 20th century, but earlier. Most of the fundamental discoveries of mankind fall on the 18-19th century.
        To create a hydrogen bomb so that it could destroy the half of the world is not a creation. Although many will say that the hydrogen bomb is a deterrent that does not allow the unleashing of the Third World War. But ... and unless the arms race is not in itself at odds with life on the planet?
        Somehow, the universities of our country opened letters-time written by students in the 70s. And in these letters, those students confidently talked about the fact that we were already flying to Mars for the rest and work, that entire cities were built on the Moon, etc. ... they believed in it.
        But what will we write in such letters-time in the form of a message to our descendants, who will open them in 100 years?

                There was once such a theory that people by their psychotype are divided into approximately three parts: "destructors" (10%), "designers" (20%) and "consumers" - the remaining 70%.
                Destructors are adventurers, criminals, revolutionaries, some military men, generally people with an awl in one place, but without a desire to create. Designers are scientists, designers themselves, also with an awl, but also with brains, and with a desire to build. Consumers - I see.
                So, all social formations before modern "democracy" focused on the first two types: for example, feudalism and fascism - on destructors, socialism of the USSR - rather on designers, but under democracy, the last 70% began to dominate everyone, subordinating destructors to their interests , and designers. Hence stupid and meaningless wars, and the same smartphones with 10 cameras or cars with an engine more powerful than a tank.

      I agree with every word. Mankind needs a paradigm shift, it needs updating, a new concept of development. In general, it exists and relies on the moral and spiritual component, but those who order music adhere to other, unfortunately, views.

      Would remain in the Stone Age so far. It is impossible not to admit that it was wars (I do not justify them, this is terrible, but nevertheless this is a medical fact) led to a jump in technology.

    IMHO, it's time to stop sucking "what will happen, what will happen".
    It’s clear. The ruble stopped falling, prices rose, countries quarantine cautiously being canceled, oil stopped falling sharply and stabilized.

    All. Over a year, the economy will pull back to the former, everything will be as before. The constitution will be changed.

    Everyone has already forgotten that all the time Yeltsin's oil was 20 bucks. And only then they raised it for GDP. And nothing.

      My dear man, we even remember what the price of oil was under Leonid Ilyich, and we were all surprised that so suddenly the goods of “not essential” necessity, but of increased demand had risen in price:

    Tell me, does someone seriously believe in the "chatter" of this doctor of economic sciences? To paraphrase the late Arkady Isaakovich, we can say that we are in these doctors of the “non-applied” economy, as we are in a mess. We even have a president - a candidate of economic sciences, and judging by the desired breakthroughs, we don’t have sparrows on the fences, but turkeys should sit, and pheasants and hazel grouses should walk on the sidewalks instead of city pigeons, which, according to V.V. Mayakovsky, he loves new "Russian elite".
    Scientists used to test their findings on themselves. So no one will check how much Sechin “earns” on the average wage in the country (at least)?

    When our welfare depends on oil and other natural resources, this is not entirely right. There are challenges ahead, when the price of a particular export product will fall. It even came to Chubais, who compared our oil to the dead cowboy horse, with whom it is necessary get down. The only time I agree with him. We go to the store, and the price of products already includes the price of oil and gas sold. And if all this disappears?

    including falling oil prices for individual suppliers to negative values
    Negative FUTURES.
    Here is an explanation like this:
    “Imagine that the wife is going to go on a business trip, and the husband orders for $ 50 a“ girl with low social responsibility, ”who will come in 15 days. This is called a futures contract.
    Suddenly, all flights are canceled due to quarantine, and the wife stays at home for the next 60 days. The husband tries to get rid of the obligation to accept the girl and tries to resell it urgently to someone. But because of quarantine, all husbands are in a similar situation (the oil storage in Cushing is full). To make matters worse, the pimp (New York Mercantile Exchange) cannot take the girl back because all rooms are occupied.
    The husband is forced to pay anyone $ 40 to get rid of the asset. "
