UNDERSTANDING PETRODOLLAR: US DOLLAR, OIL PRICES & SAUDI ARABIA (EITS #5) 5
The US relationship with Saudi Arabia still builds major headlines, especially considering the new President Trump's stubborn stance on the topic. In this video we will explore the relationship, including the history of the Petrodollar agreement.

Points discussed include:

- The origins beginning with the Yom Kippur War, resulting in US 'shuttle diplomacy' and OPEC retaliation.

- How the Nixon Shock economic measures led to issues for OPEC countries.

- How the Petrodollar relationship has begun to deteriorate in recent years, leading to a decreased reliance on the US dollar.

Good thing most Americans are too busy watching football and Dances With The Stars to realize the Petro Dollar is the reason Saudi Arabia gets a free pass for 911. Sad....

So, the "petrodollar" was a move to avoid demand-pull inflation.
Milton Friedman was very wrong on a great many of his economic theories. We are still paying the price for his neoliberal nonsense, which failed completely in 2008. The dollar is in no way tied to the value of any commodity. There is no economic model that can explain the value of the exchange rate of the dollar because it is driven by speculation. The interest rate is in no way the result of market forces. The Fed appoints the interest rate.
In terms of understanding international trade, you must understand macroeconomic sectoral balances. It does not appear that this video covers it at all.

And this is why Europe and US now pushing for electric cars etc, moving away from oil. There seems a surge in climate change, and in preparation to moving away from oil. Becuase the US knows it losing grip on the worlds oil.
