However, those in the middle of the herd cannot see the stragglers on the fringes who are systematically being taken down and feasted upon by the predators surveying the irrationally exuberant orgy of blind foolishness from the bushes.
As the speed of global economic growth begins to stall and recess, the price of oil is crashing.
Many nations, especially those in the 'emerging' markets are dependent on expensive oil to fund their government and are being thrown into turmoil by the commodities collapse. Venezuela is a prime example of this. The nation is imploding upon itself with great social unrest. Rolling blackouts begin to strike. The citizens are going through a great depression in their own right as their currency inflates and lines for government sponsored food programs grow longer by the day.
This is the picture of hyperinflation; a horrific danger inherent in any unbacked fiat currency monetary system.
Tell that bullshit to the poor guys who are going to lose their jobs as the Bakken goes bankrupt.
