Re: What Will Happen to Boat Pricing when Euro Is Under Par to US$ ?

With a deal made with Iran it wont be long before millions of barrels of oil hit the market and with that comes gas at less than $2.00 per gal...That in turn will make countries like Veneizula,Russia etc. wish that they had played ball in a different fashion..Imagine if you will what would have happened if oil prices were still at $100.00 plus per barrel !! Those named countries would have much more power and affluance than they now have..As it is it looks like the "fading USofA" aint fading too much !! Seems like being the only "super power" in the world has its perks..Im sure lots of folks on CF saw this coming as far back as 1983 as I did...You dont get info like this from news loops and belated gov. annoucments, you get it from conserted and methodic effort and having connections in the right places..I have it from "unreliable" sources that Thiland is the next place to look for signs of things to come concerning geo. politic problems(depending which side of the whole SCO thing you are on) ...The coup led military hunta that is in control now wants to purchase Chinese made submarines and seems to be falling into the China fold (if conflict starts might be a smart thing to do!) despit the fact that the Swiss and Germans offered better products..The pivot to Asia is going to be something that crusiers should keep a sharp eye on as the world enters a very stressful and contintious situation..The worlds 2nd largest economy no longer talks about being the worlds largest economy soon ,wonder why? I think they all see the writing on the wall!! I for one think that boat pricing will go thru the roof if the world inchs closer to that line in the sand regardless of oil prices just as it did during WWII...Hope I am wrong and it is all smoke and mirriors,but!
