I bet they are working out some kind of benchmark price between oil in rubles vs dollars. The Russians set up a benchmark for their crude oil last year, that's the real issue because that means their oil future's are priced in rubles not dollars.

If someone buys a million barrels of Russian crude, then they need rubles to buy it, not dollars. That means the saudis either have to develop their own benchmark and then sell future's in riyals or they continue to use the dollar as other nations start using other currencies or gold.

I mean if you are Saudi Arabia and you're selling your oil future's in dollars as other nations slowly move out of dollar transactions the budget deficit in congress then devalues the currency the arabs are selling their oil in.

The more nations that leave the dollar, the more inflation there will be in the dollar and the more the saudi's will lose in purchasing power by selling their oil in dollars.

Another way to say it is, if everyone else uses the dollar then everyone experiences the same amount of inflation robbing the current purchasing power of the currency.

But if that changes and participants stop using the dollar, then it's value relative to everything tangible becomes less and less.

You're a "have not". Those are the "haves". You play their game.

Until they notice you and then you're interesting. Life only exists when it is interesting.
