Fresh update on "riyadh" discussed on The Meb Faber Show
"Declined to happen I think dramatically increase I think the Federal Reserve, nose up. But there are very few points in these data sets that people are running when trading products that. So I think if anything that makes it even more dangerous than the more likely that a change in monetary fiscal policy, which we may be facing here going forward can change of the movement and the way that ball and risk premium products are training could make a have a dramatic effect on what happens the next STA for. Got A lot at how much input in the struggle I always have is markets of course, is this time different being able to try to figure out how much is a structural change and how much is just business as usual irreverence long term capital in such a great example on a lot of levels of this how do you sort of manage that process over the years I mean? Because there's so many different levers. You mentioned some of the put selling and just fall selling strategies and how much impact that may have how much of its fiscal, how much monetary how much was something just getting pushed one way I guess part of my question is also just how much what you're doing is just purely algorithm and how much have you had it change adapt over the years. We've had to adopt a lot obviously, the first ten years I'd traded are very different than this world. I think it's important to have that experience. A lot of people managing money. Now don't know what it was like one, eight thirty years ago and what another market looks like. I think the increased `financialisation automation. Passing. Ultimately most that based on data from the last twenty years, which is very in my mind historically unique environment. You have to respect the Riyadh in the last twenty years and position yourself according to, but also be prepared that she given where we are. In terms of policy and politics and is important as well that things interest rates could very well move higher and go back to what would be completely different regime that had very little to do in the last twenty years, and again I think the leverage in the system, not just leverage and traditional senses, but leveraging all of these risk premium products. which really increase into extended meals like we saw in March, really create a dynamic especially if it were to ever be a secular move because again, if something like March happens in, it's quick and you're able to save and not mark to market certain products and having losses comeback things are okay. But if you have a system where people in longer dated. A great examples away you know we saw ten mall which makes no sense on a rational sense go on to north of sixty that doesn't make sense nobody thought ten year ball would be sixty but they leverage in the system create situation where people had to buy back at those levels and just like in two thousand six prior to the financial crisis tenure of all was I believe running at around thirteen again ridiculous doesn't make any sense but the back markets can do crazy things and so adds that the amount of leverage that's in the system and the amount on how big positions are now across the money mansion space embedded into a sculpture products you can. Really get a situation where the effects are almost ton of four an entire Connie not to be doctor doom or I think there are real aspects of this market that are built on a lot of sunshines and the recent assumptions there based on again, data sets that are not particularly relevant for longer term timeframes in different regimes and I think we're entering a time now in particular where reese the perception of the minimum of potential change given potential fiscal policy and potential inflation could really change kind of liquidity dynamic that has really supported a lot of the trading and helped to form Fangio's I was gonNA use the more technical phrase Shit's going to get weird but I. Figured we'll keep it. Pretty Basic Vernacular Jim talked to me about twenty twenty. You mentioned tenure blew out. Was this year too quick? Did it happen in March? Maybe walk us through of what this year is look like so far. Yeah so this year again, very little been talked about how March happened in how it ended. So quickly, I mean the bottom really happened right at March expiration to quarterly expiration derivatives played a significant role in the liquidation that happened at the bottom. It has really in every since two thousand fifteen at least every major downturn, all of them have been resolved though. With Federal Reserve with quantity and greater and greater amounts that have been necessary. Obviously, there's a lot of talk about how the feds pushing on a string needs greater and greater medication to solve the metaphorical illness and the idea there is by increasing liquidity is to allow these risk premia treads really, and that's what he plucks up that much to not get out. Of Hand to not allow the art market losses in these credit spread losses in these ball product losses structured products on and on to snowball tripoint a lack of confidence in the system. The problem is again great. You can continue to support this market and not allow it to you declined, but at some point which has happened in the last twenty years, it's. Longtime creates a moral hazard A. so people are systems and programs are set up to take advantage of this and assume that tale has a lower probability than it actually has and they're also forced because of the compression of the yields and these risk premia to really because of a scarcity potential yields obviously, that fact where leads to even more selling more compressions. LEVERED system with more selling because of a fear of missing out a lack of potential other option scarcity herald moral hazard creates a massive system south self reinforcing, and if you ever have a system where liquidity disappears, the effects are exponentially worse than they ever were Federal Reserve knows this but there's very few ways out and I think the reality is if they really want inflation. That's what they're talking about. Now, I think not enough incas then spilled on the effects of inflation and how it can pin the risk premia trade have been supporting all of us leverage in the system I. think that's an unintended consequence that's not being explored at thought about by the survey by many market participants at this point again, higher interest rates a delivering of the system. Is Ultimately, at these given away, the system works given the positions that are out. There is incredibly bearish long-term, and again would mean a complete regime change. It would lead to a growth value re rotation out of growth, and into that, you would lead to a reduction of law selling undone the markets allow ways. But I think your study assumptions built into current models and understanding that the tales are now with the potential risks of a move towards a more inflationary environment really opens the door for completely different regime with different strategies. Twenty twenty it's been weird already. We've had negative you'll. Sovereigns around the world oil futures traded negative at one point all the other crazy things going on the whole broncos lineup is hurt. So we're calling this time dating September twenty third. What do you think the chances as far as regimes and this is more of a happy hour coffee gossip question do you think there's a very real possibility? No possibility something in between for sovereign. Bonds in the US to go negative do you discount that is something that's no chance on the ten year or probable what's your thoughts i? Think it's highly likely and the reason I say that is I think the third reserve is going to be forced in the next downturn to do exponentially greater things I think they're going to have to control they're going to have to. The amount of leverage in the risks in the system at this point are such that on the next decline in order to prevent a secular decline again, they're going to have to rule.
Trump and Biden's Diverging Visions for American Foreign Policy
"In our ongoing election coverage were taking a deep look at how president trump and democratic. Presidential nominee Joe Biden differ on major policy issues. Today, we're going examine foreign affairs mark. Stewart spoke with the journals national, security reporter Warren Strobel. A lot of attention in recent days to the Middle East obviously president trump is touting success with peace accords with Israel. Let's talk about the trump approach versus the biden approach. Yeah I mean in the waning weeks of the campaign here Mr Trump has secured really historic agreements from the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to make peace with Israel and recognize it diplomatically big achievement. No. Matter how you count it. I think most people would agree but there are fundamental differences between the Republican Democratic candidates particularly when it comes to Saudi Arabia Mr Biden has said that he would review relations with Saudi Arabia, which is probably the most important US ally in the Middle East that he would consider stopping arms sales he's been very critical of their killing of the journalist dissident. Jamal Kashogi Mr Trump on the other hand has declined to put pressure on Saudi Arabia. Really. In any significant way he sort of dismissed defining by the CIA that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman probably ordered the killing of Mr. Kashogi and he has vetoed congressional moves to limit arms sales to Riyadh. Saudi Arabia obviously issues in the Middle East but also Iran. Let's talk about the different approaches there. Yeah. Here again, that's quite a stark difference Mr Trump. Two thousand seventeen withdrew from the Iran nuclear accord known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on. He has launched a campaign of maximum pressure designed to limit Iran's ability to cause trouble in the region and try to force it back into talks. He's also by the way in recent days Mr Trump has said get reelected around will come to the table and we can make a deal real quickly. Mr Biden has said he would go back into the nuclear agreement. He would get the United States back into that agreement if Iran also returns to compliance. So again, Joe Biden is tough on Iran but he is much more. I think looking at diplomatic track to try and halt their nuclear program. Another region of interest is certainly Europe. Obviously there are economic issues, their political as well as military issues. When we look at Europe, how big of a role does the relationship with NATO play in this discussion? You know I think it plays a significant role. NATO's the probably the most important and one of the longest standing alliances that the United States has. Important economically in terms of the trade between the United States and Europe, and important strategically given its role in sort of countering Russia Russia intervention in places like Ukraine Belarus. Again there's differences here though Mr Trump has been pretty critical of NATO. He demanded that all the countries live up to. A promise they made to spend two percent of their GDP. Self. Defense, and there have been rumors that he might withdraw from NATO entirely or want to. This is Chris from Mr Biden who again stressing the importance of good alliances with Europe and other parts of the world. You. Briefly mentioned Russia, where are the distinctions in viewpoint and policy between the two candidates? That's a good question. I think the trump administration has been in terms of my reporting and analysis sort of a weird bee's when it comes to Russia Mr Trump himself. No has been quite friendly with and trying to strike a good relationship with Vladimir Putin, but the people in the middle and. Upper levels of US government agencies are taking much more dim view, Mr Putin, and actually you know the US has done a lot of sanctions and other actions against Putin during Mr Trump's terms. So there's sort of a kind of a bipolar aspect to his administration's dealings with Russia Mr. Biden. I think has been more critical. Putin personally and has said he would stand up to Mr Putin on things such as election interference the Russian incursion into Ukraine and other things like that.

Despite the generalized language, Israel is officially upbeat about Saudi Arabia is new policy, opening its air space to all countries sending flights to or from the United Arab Emirates.

Israel and the UAE: why now and whats next?
"Is the greatest advancements toward peace between Israel and the Arab world in the last twenty, six years and it marks the third formal peace between Israel and an Arab nation. The diplomatic, Reproche Mon to nounce between Israel and the United Arab, Emirates last week is not in and of itself quite as big a deal as its orchestrators wished to claim the two countries have never been to war with each other the official hostility to Israel such as it was usually sounded pretty phoned in done for foresake when other Arab governments let fly with the fire-breathing choruses of condemnation in Israel's direction. The were generally very much in the back row of the quoi royal mumbling vaguely along hoping to be noticed. Israel and the US you have. Long. Dealt pretty, easily with each other Israeli ministers have made official visits to the Emirates.

Progress has been made towards peace in the. Middle, East? By United Jew of America's closest and most capable partners in the region something which said could not be done. This deal is a significant step towards building a more peaceful secure and prosperous middle. East US President Donald Trump is claiming credit for brokering this agreement but suggestions by his proxies and flunkies that this is somehow worthy of the Nobel peace prize he frantically desires. somewhat optimistic granted that President Trump's predescessor barrack Obama was just given. One is a sort of housewarming present but an exchange of ambassadors between Israel and the U. A is just not a seismic recalibration comparable with the peace reached between Egypt and Israel in Nineteen, seventy, eight or Israel and Jordan in nineteen, ninety, four, I say to the people of Israel and Jordan. Now. You must make this peace real. To, turn no man's land into every man's home. To take down the barbed wire to remove the deadly minds. To help the. wounds. Of War to heal. However via the normalization of Israeli, Emirati relations may not be big deal. It may portend things which are indeed it's the fact that it isn't a big deal which may be the really big deal here. Israel's only two previous such agreements with countries as referenced above were with Egypt and Jordan neighbors against whom they fought wars. They were extraordinary responses to extraordinary circumstances. The agreement with the UI founds a diplomatic relationship which seems more or less remarkable than say, a diplomatic relationship between Denmark and Malaysia Will Senegal and Peru. It could have a domino effect. There are already suggestions that some other Arab, states including. Bahrain and Morocco a coming around to the U.

In our opinion this action is incorrect wrong one hundred percents. And it is a betrayal of the Palestinian. People and the will of Muslims and the will of quotes. Villas in autumn on Amazon one. Zero. Two significant shifts underpinning this realignment one is that in recent years Israel and the Arab states have discovered something they agree on Iran which regard as some combination of nuisance menace and existential threat. The other is that Israel and the Arab states have discovered something that they no longer disagree on at least old that much Palestine, which the rest of the Arab world seems less and less keen on pretending to care about a much ballyhooed component of the Israel you deal was Israel's promised to suspend its plans to annex the West.

You a deal was very much not greeted by widespread dancing and celebrate tree hooting of car hoons in Gaza and Ramallah. There have been from Palestinian sources grim mutterings about betrayal by their fellow Arabs. Unfortunately, nowadays, most of the Arab is looking after their own interests at the expense of the Palestinian course. The wretched reality is that it's nothing. So sinister, it is simply that Palestine is increasingly regarded in Arab capitals as yesterday's cause and as a baffling boring headache one of the hardiest diplomatic truisms is Lord Pompton Quip that nations have no permanent friends no permanent enemies just permanent interests right now to the UAE and other Arab states which may follow.

Travel to Saudi Arabia
"Welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christianson. Let's talk about Saudi Arabia. I'd like to welcome to the show flow meter. Who's come to us from Munich Germany but come to talk to us about Saudi Arabia flow? Welcome to the show. Thank you Chris. Happy to be here. Saudi Arabia is not a place that well actually. It's a place that a lot of people have gone on Hosh. It's one of the most popular travel destinations in the world but for people who are not Muslims. It is a relatively new destination very true yet. Open up its tourist visa in the end of September so everything is very new. There and for me was the interesting part of really yet. Go to a country where tourism really hasn't been a part of the history in the last year. I guess that answers the question of why you went to Saudi Arabia. Was there more to the story than just it opened up. The opportunity was available. I mean Saudi Arabia. There's so much so much to talk about. I mean first of all landscape. I think we always think about at least to me. It was okay. Saudi Arabia desert oil encampments. That's the first words that came to remind but the landscape boys. There is so much more to see. I mean the Sea of the mountains zero than history wise. I mean a lot of ancient kingdoms coming from there the history of Islam being from there but for me it was one of the biggest reasons why a went to Saudi. Arabia was the hospitality of the people. I heard such amazing things about that. I've been around in the Middle East and I wanted to experience it for myself and as soon as I heard. They opened up the doors for tourists. I said okay. I'm going to jump on that wagon and I want to see for myself to really see how it is. And what kind of an itinerary? Are you going to recommend for us when you look at the map? Saudi Arabia is a huge country. So I always say it's better to have more time than less. But if you have about eight to ten days that should give you a good idea overview over the country so I did it. I'd recommend always starting in Ria. That's the capital on the east side. And then making your way for the West stow after that a Lula which is a beautiful beautiful historic site than to Medina which is super interesting because Muslims go there as well now and then to Jeddah and then from Jeddah head back to Fly Back from Jeddah which options whatever works best for you excellent before we get into that in more detail one place. You didn't name and I WANNA talk about why you didn't name. It is a place that other people might be interested in going. And that's Mecca and there's a reason why you didn't name Mecca and we OUGHTA address the elephant in the room as it were so if he would want to go to Mecca. I'll give you the picture you'll drive on the road and then you see a big sign which says non Muslims go right and Muslims go straight celebrate as a non Muslim. You're not allowed to go to Mecca. And that of course has to be respected now of course if you are Muslim than that's entirely different and you in fact are encouraged or required depending on how one looks at that to make a trip to Mecca at least once in your life if you have the means to do so. So but we're not gonNA address Mecca in this particular episode. We're not going to address going on Hajj because most of the show can't do that so excellent you started us in Riyadh exactly so the beauty of Saudi Arabia is that everything is pretty new so I mean arriving day you arrive at a Super Bowl Airport. I first of all said okay. I'm GonNa take the metro into town so followed the metro signs only to find out that not. That's not billed yet. So that's how earlier wasn't the country so back out of the airport into Uber and into town. We think we always have this idea that Saudi Arabia is a very rich country but maybe a bit old school. That definitely didn't find that the case Uber which works fantastic they have all the amenities modern buildings amazing and paired with all the history that comes with it and there was amazing for me on firsthand arrived in the country. I get into Uber. You drive into town takes about forty five minutes because traffic is crazy and we start talking and suddenly he stops and he gets out of the car and he comes back into the car with a box of oranges. And I'm super perplexingly. Okay what would you know? He's giving me this box of oranges and I was like okay. Maybe we did the picked it up for his wife or his family and he's like no no no. This is for you and this was the first time really experienced hands on Saudi hospitality. Which is insane. I mean I've been to a lot of places but never ever did uber. Taxi driver gave me a present for just arriving in the country. And that would be a new one for me as well. It's really insane. And this was not a one time I arrived in is expensive. There's a lot of hotels but they are quite expensive when expensive sixty seventy USD. For I would say the the cheapest room.
Oil Rises as Trump Talks Up Saudi-Russia Truce, Recession Fears Limit Gains

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, backed by the king, moves for absolute power
"It is easy to forget that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz. Al Sowed is not actually technically ruler of Saudi Arabia. That title belongs formerly to his elderly Father King Salman however since his appointment as crown prince in two thousand seventeen. It has been widely understood that. Nbs often known is the heir designate. Power behind the throne and at the age of thirty four very much the future of Saudi Arabia in this unofficial role mb has furnished considerable cause for concern he has overseen a terrible onslaught against Yemen and a blockade of Qatar. Neither of which appear to have accomplished much. He has interred dozens of his fellow royalty. For a time in a Ritz hotel and more or less kidnapped the prime minister of Lebanon perhaps most infamously. Nbs is widely supposed responsible for the murder of Washington. Post columnist. Jamal Khashoggi even by those standards. This week's palace intrigue in Riyadh is remarkable. Several members of the court appear to have been arrested at MBA's instruction including one of his uncles and one of his cousins dozens more army officers and civil servants are also reported to have been rounded up east this NBA swatting a coup. D'etat conducting one of his own. If he does manage to reach the throne when King Solomon's time comes. What does he want to do with it and is in BS? Perhaps not quite the Mariah Carey loving modernizer. He would have us believe. This is the foreign desk when you bring in Mariah Carey and all these singers and pay them views amount of money but you do not have an any universities anyplace to learn music. There is no department in any Saudi university to learn. Play ride to a drama making this these other forms that you should look for. And whether this massive youth constituency what she has to some extent manage to bring behind him is still behind him in five years time because young people need to get jobs. They need to be able to get married. They can't subsistence promises forever. So I think Basch is going to be the key determinant his credibility rather than some of the things that I looked with more interested in the book. We must remember that. Donald Trump has given unequivocal support. D'amato Vince on who is heavily implicated in the killing of the journalist. Jamal Hasha he. Trump has had his back on that one and I think as as long as trump remains in power that this relationship will continue quite strongly. You're listening to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Miller on today show. I'm joined by Ali Al Ahmed and Laura James Ali. Ahmed is a Saudi Scala. The Institute for Gulf Affairs joins us from Washington DC. Laura James is senior Middle East analyst at the Global Advisory Firm Oxford Analytica Ali. Al Start with you and I'll start with well it's not always an easy question to answer with Saudi Arabia's concerned which is the the pretty basic one of as far as we know what has been going on this week Mohammed bin Salman the heir apparent of King. Solomon who has a lot of political ambitions obviously has members of the ruling family who are his rivals and they do not want to see him become king if they would like to see him ousted some just by talking and some by plotting so what has happened is Hamad discernment is extremely insecure about that and he took measures to stop any attempt to remove him. We have two groups here those who are talking and then the sort of speaking ill of Like his uncle Ahmad but Abdelaziz who who thinks that he has better in terms of becoming king and you have his cousin especially the younger ones who rallied around the his main rival. Hamad bin naive to try to dislodge him for power by by force even and that is why we have seen these steps of arrest and monitoring hundreds of members on family who are eyeing the throne Laura to bring you in his they one fundamental thing looking behind this extraordinary shakespeare in intrigue. Is it a reasonable assumption that MBBS is trying to nail down his future in anticipation that King Mohammed who is eighty four years old and not in good health? Con- last forever. I think he's done really since he became Crown Princeton before has been based on that assumption. It's been about shoring up his position within the family and I think if when his father succeeded nobody would have predicted that he could have done it. This effectively. He is essentially unchallenged. Do we understand. If the differences between the rival factions are actually political or is this basically a more atavistic. Instinctual family feud. I'm not sure that you can draw the distinction very clearly in Saudi Arabia between family in politics the two very much Banda with each other. I would say one difference between Mohammed bin Salman. His rivals is that he thinks that the anyway food. Saudi Arabia is essentially for one person to be in clear charging for that person to him whereas some of the people who oppose him wants to get back to a more consensual style family managed rule and Schering of resources and consensus in enslave change whereas if a political as well family reasons bin Salman says no that model work for Saudi Arabia. Dunga all these possible to be clear on rich factions of the house of sowed supporting. Nbs this point. Does he actually have the numbers? I think? So the most important in Saudi government and the ruling. Saudi Arabia is not even the ruling family anymore. It was about power previously. The model like Laura speaking about the there were centers of power at King. Abdullah had the national guard was his own militia guns so he can force his His agenda and his position and so on the delayed crown prince was also minister of defense so he had the army under his control so he can push his agenda and most importantly then the ministry of the interior with late conference knife had the interior ministry. Which has the largest number of security personnel and across the country and so he can use that to push himself to the throne in all of these people reach the throne. Some some did some died before they they got to to become king now all of these powers the Army National Guard and the Interior Ministry has been gutted and removed. Everything that's powerful about. It has been moved to something called the State Security Agency and the control of bin Salman so our bin Salman controls all the military and security apparatus in the country. So who is his real challenge? No one they can speak. They can talk about. They cannot do very much. There are members of the family who want to see him out. This is not strange to the Saudi ruling family King Faysal was shot and killed by his own nephew. King Salad was overthrown by his brothers. And also there was an assassination attempt on his life after he was deposed and expelled. This is nothing new in the history of the family so I expect to see some harsh measures against some of those younger princess like Nawaf bin Ni- F- Who was arrested and Mohammed bin?

In the murder of Jamal Khashoggi would there be a concern in the rest of the court that he might be quite the loose cannon concerns among some parts of the ruling family and very strong concerns internationally. I think there are two distinct issues. One is about foreign policy mistakes. And as you've said in terms of Yemen in terms of Qatar in terms of the confrontation with Iran and particularly in Lebanon. It seemed that. His foreign policy initiatives haven't worked very well. I think within the country that's less important like the Ritz Carlton and this latest. Crackdown are actually less important than the nuts and bolts of vision twenty thirty which is his transformation plan so Mohammed bin Salman has stepped forward and said we know we need to change.

Why are oil prices dropping?
"Late last week. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries OPEC a cartel of thirteen major oil producers met in Vienna OPEC agreed to cut their total output by one point five million barrels. A day an attempt to stabilize the price of oil in the face of slumping demand Bright US situation. We have over two subtitled. The market is necessarily OPEC non-opec something for the OPEC needed to sell this pact to Russia which is not a member of the organization but has generally seemed an amenable ally in recent years. We are hoping that I share Is Very Important member. They've been working with us for a very long time. And I think we understand each other. Now we look forward to To good meeting I cannot see. Us Not agreeing. Because that's very important for the market and everyone is keen. Not this time. Russia refused to cut its production by way of retaliation. Saudi Arabia opened. Its taps further and offer discounts on top Saudi production. Next month will be at least twenty five percent higher than Saudi production last month. Russia then threatened to increase its production to a record. Eleven point eight million barrels a day. The consequence of the unleashing of these cases was that oil prices plummeted further and faster than any time since the first Gulf War in nineteen ninety. One the barrel of Brent crude he bought for nearly sixty dollars just two weeks ago. You couldn't sell for more than thirty six bucks today. Don't WanNA check his prices. Because this plunge US remarkable folks it was on reports that Saudi Arabia slashing prices and increasing supply this after talks with Russia collapsed prices down more than twenty two percent earlier today the biggest loss since launch of the Gulf War. If one takes an extremely narrow view of this. It's not altogether bad news. Indeed the world's preeminent narrow view taker. Us President Donald Trump tweeted on Monday as oil prices charged towards the earth's core good for consumer gasoline prices coming down. The broadview was somehow condensed into the reply to this tweet by twitter. Use a cold. Michael Hayden ought to extend to him. His full title retired Four-star. Us Air Force General. Michael Hayden former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency. Hayden spoke for many in the US and elsewhere when he tweeted simply pithily. Oh my God it is of course far from the first time that president trump has done a convincing impression of a self involved illiterate simpleton who has absolutely no idea what is going on or what he's talking about. So what are we looking at here? More specifically what in the wide world of sports is Russia playing at especially since its economy in recent times has been so reliant on the price of oil staying on the high side where. Russia is concerned. One should never rush to discount the possibility that they're just winding everybody up but Russia may also have spotted an opportune moment to strike at a potential rival America's shale oil industry. The fracking of the United States were already running up immense debts against expected future discoveries and anticipated future earnings bargain-basement oil prices could finish more than a few of these companies off prior to a recovery. Yesterday some oil explorers like dental petroleum of Houston saw their share prices have Russia may also be biting back against American sanctions against Russia's energy sector last month Russian oil giant Rosneft helmed by Longtime Vladimir. Putin Associate Egos session was punished for transporting Venezuelan crude. I'm sure there will the efforts to get around the sanctions already. Rosneft is doing this. For example by changing the names of ships or ship to shift transfers to try to hide the Venezuelan origin of oil. It remains to be seen how long Moscow can outstay a Riyadh while Russia cannot compete with Saudi Arabia's production nor is it as reliance on oil to function oil revenues thirty seven percent of Russia's budget compared to sixty five percent of Saudi Arabia's Russia has suggested that it might be open to renewed talks with OPEC whether these happen or whether anything comes of them or not. This would not be the first time that Russia has chiefly pursued a policy that hurts Russia. As long as it hurts everyone else. More

"Are the oil markets have crashed more than thirty percent off to the disintegration of the APEC plus salons is triggered an all out price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia at the opening of Asian trading Brent futures tumbled the most since the first Gulf War Goldman Sachs is when prices could drop to near twenty dollars a barrel well let's pick up on that with the Bloomberg reporter Ameri Holden who joins us on the line from New York studios Sir I'm ready good morning let's first will what is why is this happening fundamentally what is going on in the markets good morning while this comes after that disintegration of the OPEC plus meeting and really the break up of the group they didn't even decide to roll over the cuts they decided on in December and really you as Bob McNally puts it Riyadh is furious and they tend to teach Russia a lesson by crashing these oil prices so you saw over the weekend Aramco went out and they cut by the most in ten thirty years on their on their crude prices that's gonna have a rollover to fact to all the other Gulf producers and Russia's going to have to respond and you saw the price collapse and and this is something that even in the thirties any Russia has definitely less smaller breakeven than Saudi but even the thirty these are numbers that's going to even have president Putin start to worry and the idea is to try to push Russia to come back to the negotiating table but it's very risky this is very risking we're seeing it affect not just the oil market this is going to have this is going to affect every part of the global economy yeah absolutely I mean it could basically savage national budgets I mean all of the national budgets of the big oil producers but that is a tough because you say that Saudi has used before though not to this extent I mean it's a very difficult time for it to make this move yeah and that's and Morse put it really well this is different than everyone keeps comparing it to the price worth two thousand fourteen but this is different this is the first time ever we're gonna have significant over supply from the producers at coincides with demand Shockley of complete demand destruction so while we don't have the demand out there which we saw from Asia now we see it in Europe and the U. S. as the court of ours fears continue to extend flights are grounded towns quarantine kids are staying home at school now we're going to have on top of that demand destruction the fact that these producers are just going to start to ramp up their production the Saudis are producing someone in the nine billion million dollars about range they're signaling to the market that they are going to go to ten and then potentially to their capacity which is twelve million barrels a day that is something that is scary but I think for the problem with Russia is that they went into this meeting that willing to do something if it was tiny but I think it was personal and logistics personal front they don't want to be put in a corner I think that ultimatum was a bit scary for them given the fact that they don't want to set a precedent to pack it was really interesting because OPEC released their own press release that that first day and usually they would wait for Russia to come to the table before they say what they're even interested in doing so they really backed into the corner and clearly put did not respond well to that secondly many are talking about the fact that I've talked to a lot of traders and hedge funds going into that meeting saying that Russia just wants to put these low cost producers out A. K. A. shale and Bob McNally from rapid makes another really good point talk about the fact that what Russia could do is that they start to boost production and then come back to the table when they do ultimately cut it's going to be from a much higher level to their end of may be able to maintain a bigger market share Annemarie I suppose briefly there's always the possibility China signaling very much that it wants to come back online trying to re engineer its economy back into normal I mean that could be a resurgence in the Mumbai gas yes and they're going to be winners from this any low oil prices is definitely going to be good for consumers around the world kind of course being one of them the world's largest oil importer to their recovery from the virus will be key for the global demand and cheaper oil prices will clearly help them also it'll help US consumers US consumers at the gas prices at the gas pump and really consumers around the world the problem with the U. S. is that it's going to be short term gain and I think long term pain if this goes on for longer because as city says the shale breakeven is forty dollars about we're ready in the twenties on WTI in the thirties on Brent so this is going to be a big alarm for Texas in the

N. as a state killing well the that you're an expert who investigated the killing yeah basically said that this this this investigation has been nothing but a mockery makes a mockery of justice at because it did not look to the chain of command it did not shed any light on who ordered the killing how did that happen in a diplomatic in a in a diplomatic premises in foreign lands the foreign minister of of Turkey also said that at the investigation and that willing did not give any lights on who ordered that the murder so that's a fairly damning indictment from the U. and eight enters the chain of command I mean to tease I was like that is quite strong how is this being received in insanity in Saudi Arabia and Saudi Arabia a lot of people are celebrating this has the Saudi justice system at work and as a justice being served for a Saudi victim who's been and being killed by a rogue operation at the at the same time the family of the son of social she who is living in Saudi Arabia said that he has faith in the US and that in the Saudi justice system at some major may basically say he could be coerced he's living in Saudi Arabia but the and the so far we've seen a lot of celebration at on Twitter especially for these two top aides of of the crown prince who being cleared and some of the some some we have seen scene also state TV and so on and a lot of promotion all of their achievement unless they have what they have done well we'll see I would responses in the Americas of course the sentencing probably won't turn off the fires that started after the casualty at issue in the US Congress and see what comes more from the US and I thank you very much Jennifer at tracking the crucial to murder up next Boeing fi's Dennis Mollen.

Goldberg Nine Five Goldberg's garage on Instagram. You can get the rules on how to do that so a lot of pilled yelling and videos and people people seem to like he's not I don't I don't know what's a depiction of what am I normal life though like all right everything just shop was great. Can you do at this time with yelling. Your Eli sure and now it's good but before we wrap I wanna I wanna ask Alastair about the the new corvette It's been announced a few months. Now I know you guys got one order along with your shelby. Gt five hundred. You got a chance to drive the corvette or fat recently. What did you drive? What configuration tell me about it? So we'll we drove the pretty much the one that you'd want to few more Luxury luxury items but basically in the in the SPEC that you want so with the Magna ride and and the performance kitten everything else and I was really impressed by it. Yeah we'd go to if if you go to YouTube Channel Edmonds Youtube Channel. We go film out about it at the moment but it which which is doing great buddy. I drove down the road and then I drove it at a test track and particularly on the the truck he feels like a proper mid engined supercar. Yeah and you know what it's it's there's a lot of things going for you know the it's the last remaining naturally aspirated rated V.. Eight that you can get in any any a- superfan Audis veterans. It is great volume and he feels like a different experience. It doesn't feel like the old toll that it always felt like a coal that they see giving you a genuine supercar experience at a fraction of the price. And you know the brakes great. The steering really surprised me. How good the starring walls? It's agile. I was really impressed by it. See you drove it on a track. Yeah and you drove it around town as well. We're just how is it like you know everybody that the track stuff I kind of expected to be fantastic but most people that drive. That car are just GonNa try that around town because it's a cool looking car aren't you know. And it's again better than better than we might have expected aids the ride quality particularly because when you say most people are GonNa cruise around in them. The right qualities borderline luxurious again. This guy had magnified which we which refunds off. Yeah and they really good compromise. I mean they yeah. This is a few things. He's like the over the shoulder visibility mid engine call. You know you tend to tend to accept that but yeah as a thing to as a thing to drive around town as a thing to live with and that was the big question and how's it gone away from being a car that you could generally drive every day. I think he could is the front axle lift fast because the front half axle lift feature and a lot out of cars Porsche and McLaren. You gotTa start doing that. A block or two away because it is slow well the only the four. Gt that thing pops out like a low rider. Well let's hydraulic. Yeah I remember I remember. I did the original Dr of that and I can believe that what was happening is basically my head. I was like oh it broke. Yeah Lhamo The covert thing says. He's very cool feature which is GPS space. So you'll driving if he. AC learns if you're driving home and you know there's a few speed speed bump so you know you gotta go up into your driveway or something like that. The car will actually learn automatically. Raise the nose do not order a corvette without one that would be my advice. It would be madness. Yeah you need it. Yeah you're GonNa just smash the front of that thing on thing but as we talked about before on the show it starts sixty K.. And that's the headline figure but to get the one that you won't is just over seventy so it's not like they're really playing really pulling a fast one ninety grand friend of mine said he configured it with the options he liked. He was at eighty-five with it. But but which is which is good by the way still sub hundred like not not ninety four thousand sub Bob. It's it's it's significantly Saab hundred. There's a few I mean there's still a field of the seats. Were in great. That was the that had like the like the supposed to be Super Super Progressive Sports seats. So he's and but it's and the interiors better in real life in pitches you got these very old weather. The EH conditioning controls the line of switches. In in in the in pitches it looks really weird and imposing but actually in real life. It's it's it's a lot easier to to to live with. That's interesting the hair. It's a good example of how how while using it is is is going to make the difference like getting into an actually messing with it is. Is the game changer. When as far as just seeing it in photos and we do see a lot of that we see a lot of things have photos going? I don't know about this. I don't know about that and But when you get in and start playing with it and you're like Oh this does actually feel right now. I see why they did this by time.
