Consumer spending is still way way in the toilet. If you don't believe that just look at Walmart's year over year revenues. What happened to all of that tax refund spending spreed? It went to pay for gas, the mortgage, and groceries... [/quote] There is a simple explanation, while GDP was positive year over year, Obamco was deficit spending about $1 trillion a year or about 6-8% of GDP.

Printing money in a chronically low interest rate environment will have a continually diminishing rate of return to GDP, until finally that return becomes negative, at which point...the game is up. I would say ask any economist, but 1/2 of them have never examined fiat monetary policy all the way through it's inevitable end point. But I have... [/quote]

In doing so they admitted that while both nations are eager to move away from a US Dollar reserve currency, neither is yet able to provide an alternative. This changed rather dramatically overnight when in a little noticed statement, Gazprom's CFO Andrey Kruglov uttered the magic words (via Bloomberg):
GAZPROM READY TO SETTLE CHINA CONTRACTS IN YUAN OR RUBLES: CFO
In other words just as the US may or may not be preparing to export crude - a step which would weaken the dollar's reserve status as traditional US oil trading partners will need to find other import customers who pay in non-USD currencies - the world's two other superpowers are preparing to respond. And once the bilateral trade in Rubles or Renminbi is established, the rest of the energy world will piggyback...
