As the New Cold War shifts from Ukraine to Syria, so does the weekly discussion between Mr. Batchelor and Professor Cohen.
This week's discussion was once again interesting and helpful. Much of the program, however, centered around a Wall Street Journal op-ed that was published last weekend. The author was Henry Kissinger and, in it, Dr. Kissinger discusses the declining American role in the region. This is important to all of us in Turdville due to the long-term implications for the petrodollar and the "petrodollar recycling scheme".
Dr. Kissinger's column can be found here: http://www.wsj.com/articles/a-path-out-of-the-middle-east-collapse-1445037513
Please, as usual, be sure to give this a thorough listen.
p.s. There should be no reason to flood this thread with all of the "Kissinger is the devil" stuff. Most folks are already aware of all of it. Instead, view the discussion through the prism of petrodollar demise as Kissinger was always reported to be the key architect of the system.
