Jim Norman's knowledge of energy markets represents
years covering the big-picture both domestically and globally. He has been a senior
editor at Forbes magazine, served as the Houston bureau chief for BusinessWeek,
and is the author of The Oil Card:
Global Economic Warfare in the 21st Century. Jim is one of those rare experts
who can integrate the dots between futures markets in New York, what they mean to
global politics from Moscow to Washington, and how this impacts you and me on Main
Such intelligence is invaluable as businesses, households, and savings are profoundly
impacted by the availability and price of energy as dictated by global economic
warfare. This means that commodities and financial markets serve vastly different
aims than allocating assets and capital in the real economy. As the resulting volatility
in commodities and financial markets rises, we hunger for an understanding of what
is really happening—just the kind of knowledge that Jim can help us develop.
On this week’s Solari
Report, Jim and I will discuss why we are skeptical of “peak oil”
theories and what’s next in the competition for global strategic resources,
particularly in Iran. We'll also cover the fall of the Soviet Union, the subsequent
“privatization” of Russian assets, the emergence of global competition
with China, and the “pipeline politics” that have inspired a long term
U.S. military presence in the Middle East.
This will be an important hour for helping you understand the trends driving U.S.
politics as well as successful investment strategies for your family and business.
