    Is it economics when ameristani producers pay buyers to take it away?

    China is highly reliant on global trade to prosper. Will that continue indefinitely? Maybe, but they cannot feed 1.5 billion people otherwise. They are more vulnerable than you may think.

    Should the US see a reversal in fortune, they are better suited to survive simply because they have less population to resources disparity than China.

    I reluctantly predict a global ecological crisis within the next few decades, and I don't see China maintaining it's current standard of living or military might when the dominoes begin to fall. Will China continue to bully its neighbors then? Will they have the luxury to do so?

    Thank you for your inaccurate opinion of, my mental health and your inaccurate opinion, that oil is not a necessity, for the ameristani food industry.

    The ameristani commercial food industry is reliant on a few necessities:

    1. Oil -

    a. farmers (transport, machinery, home use),
    b. seed production (chemicals, transport, machinery, workers home use),
    c. planting (chemicals, transport, machinery, workers home use),
    d. pesticides (chemicals, transport, machinery, workers home use),
    e. harvesting (transport, machinery, workers home use) ,
    f. processors (transport, machinery, workers home use),
    g. distributors (transport, machinery, workers home use),
    i. storage (transport, machinery, workers home use)
    j. Retail Outlets (transport, machinery, workers home use)
    k ....

    2. Imported foreign labour in all the areas in 1.

    3. Feed stock to refine and produce plastics for packaging ....

    I've not quoted sources as I suspect most would agree 1, 2 and 3 are obvious "facts".

    As shown elsewhere ameristan choose to import some of its oil and it's labour. Choices maybe based on price or refinery defined/required oil type/grade.

    ameristan also has it's Strategic Reserves which may or may not have the required oil type/grades.

    "• What type of crude oil is stored in the Reserve?

    During the years that the Strategic Petroleum Reserve has existed, crude oil has been acquired from 25 countries. The oil is categorized as either "sweet" (with a sulfur content not exceeding 0.5 percent by weight) or "sour" (with a sulfur content greater than 0.5 percent but less than 2.0 percent). The SPR accepts only crude oil that meets its quality specifications and it is co-mingled in caverns designated as either sweet or sour."

    "• What is the ratio of sweet and sour crudes in the SPR? How was the ratio determined?

    As of September 1, 2018, Crude oil stored in the SPR is about 38.6 percent sweet and 61.4 percent sour. The ratio was established to meet the needs of the U.S. refining industry most likely to take SPR crude in the event of a drawdown, particularly those in the Gulf Coast area. Sweet crude oil can be processed by nearly all refiners; the same is not true for sour crude."

Hence the government invested heavily in health and education.

In 1991, the governmentproposed a policy agenda that formed the basis for the Economic and Structural AdjustmentProgram.5The ESAP sought to transform Zimbabwe's tightly controlled Chinese Maritime Militia on the Move in Disputed Spratly Islands-screen-shot-2020-04-02-16-aeconomic system to a more open,market-driven economy. The restructuring sought to promote higher growth and to reducepoverty and unemployment by (1) reducing fiscal and parastatal deficits and instituting prudentmonetary policy; (2) liberalizing trade policies and the foreign exchange system; (3) carrying outdomestic deregulation; and (4) establishing social safety net and training programs for vulnerablegroups. Chinese Maritime Militia on the Move in Disputed Spratly Islands-screen-shot-2020-04-02-16-aThe focus was on the formal sector as the engine of growth.Although there were some changes in the economy, the objectives of ESAP were not met.

Gametogenesis of the three species occurs year round, and juvenile cockles grow rap-idly. Cockle densities at sizes at least 16–42 mm long ranged from 7 to 24/m2 in Mexico.

The mangrovChinese Maritime Militia on the Move in Disputed Spratly Islands-images-1-jpege swamps are in nearly pristine condition in every country except Honduras, Ecuador, and Peru, where shrimp farms constructed in the 1980’s and 1990’s have destroyed some mangrove zones. In addition, Hurricane Mitch destroyed some Honduran mangrove swamps in 1998. About 15,000 fishermen, including men, women, and children, harvest the cockles. Ecuador has the largest tabulated number of fishermen, 5,055, while Peru has the fewest, 75. Chinese Maritime Militia on the Move in Disputed Spratly Islands-images-jpegColombia has a large number, perhaps exceeding that in Ecuador, but a detailed census of them has never been made. The fishermen are poor and live a meager existence; they do not earn sufficient money to purchase adequate food to allow their full health and growth potential. They travel almost daily from their villages to the harvesting areas in wooden canoes and fiberglass boats at low tide when they can Chinese Maritime Militia on the Move in Disputed Spratly Islands-download-pngwalk into the mangrove swamps to harvest cockles for about 4 h. Harvest rates, which vary among countries owing to differences in cockle abundances, range from about 50 cockles/fisherman/day in El Salvador and Honduras to 500–1,000/ fisherman/day in Mexico. The fishermen return to their villages and sell the cockles to dealers, who sell them mainly whole to market outlets within their countries, but there is some exporting to adjacent countries. An important food in most countries, the cockles are eaten in seviche, raw on the half-shell, and cooked with rice. The cockles are under heavy Chinese Maritime Militia on the Move in Disputed Spratly Islands-locations-mussel-cockle-beds-pacific-oysterharvesting pressure, except in Mexico, but stocks are not yet being depleted because they are harvested at sizes which have already spawned. Also some spawning stocks lie within dense mangrove stands which the fishermen cannot reach. Consumers fortunately desire the largest cockles, spurning the smallest. Cockles are important to the people, and efforts to reduce the harvests to prevent overfishing would lead to severe economic suffering Chinese Maritime Militia on the Move in Disputed Spratly Islands-screen-shot-2020-04-02-16-ain the fishing communities. Pro-grams to conserve and improve cockle habitats may be the most judicious actions to take. Preserving the mangrove swamps intact, increasing their Chinese Maritime Militia on the Move in Disputed Spratly Islands-screen-shot-2020-04-02-16-asizes where possible, and controlling cockle predators would lead to an increase in cockle abundance and harvests. Fishes that prey on juvenile cockles might be seined along the edges of swamps before the tide rises and they swim into the swamps to feed. Transplanting mangrove seedlings to suitable areas might increase the size of those.

    Thank you for your links, although not about our previous discussion. Many may read them and applaud your ability to obscure your previous claims.

    Have I disputed ameristan has a domestic oil and gas extraction and refining industry?

    My statemented was questioning whether it had, has, will have historically, now and in the future , a Self Sufficient oil industry.

    I also provided linked, ameristani government agency "facts", to strengthen my opinion.

    Which you again have failed to provide.

    Research and post what you wish. Possibly a course on presenting relevant info in a legible manner may help the "retards" to assimilate more readily.

    I fear your last two posts here are only accessible to our forum drunks. But that may well be your target audience.

    WTF is a self sufficient oil industry? If you are thinking the US can’t directly use what it produces, you would be wrong.

    A self sufficient oil industry is an industry which can supply all that is required within it's physical borders. Basic commodities - crude oil, service equipment - drilling rigs, pumps, pipes, control systems ... service companies - workers, accommodation, canteens, bars, brothels ..., educated workers - finance, management, technical ..., financial services, transportation vehicles, .... I suggest ameristan has, in the oil industry, great world class expertise, except in one basic area - an indigenous crude supply that meets it's own SPR mandated spec..

    ameristan does not have the amounts and types of some crude oil it requires and as such it imports them from foreign countrify. In addition some of it's refineries have been designed, built and operated for decades to only refine crude oils from specific countries. As noted in previous posts in this thread.

    You may wish to read my previous post and note what the ameristani government energy agency state, regarding crude oil types/supplier countries which many ameristani refiners on the Gulf of Mexico coast are able to refine.

    Here is my post

    As 'arry has suggested it's probably purely a crude price input.

    However some oil refinery's have been built to handle a crude from a limited number of countries. Refineries take a while to build, are expensive run, are designed to optimise output from a particular crude and are owned by powerful groups who reward their selected politicians with re-election funding/bribes. It's capitalist democracy

    WTF do you think ameristan wants their puppy dog running Venezuela?

I suggest ameristan has, in the oil industry, great world class expertise, except in one basic area - an indigenous crude supply that meets it's own SPR mandated spec..

    ameristan does not have the amounts and types of some crude oil it requires and as such it imports them from foreign countrify. In addition some of it's refineries have been designed, built and operated for decades to only refine crude oils from specific countries. As noted in previous posts in this thread.
    Oh shut up you witless fucker.

    The seppos have all the oil they need if they want it.

    And when I say you can't read it's because no amount of repetition gets facts into your thick, deluded skull.

    One more time:

    The US can be a net exporter any time it likes. It's simply a question of economics. If it's cheaper to buy it abroad than drill for it, leave it there.
    You read some irrelevant Bloomberg article about a niche producer with no distribution network ending up losing money, well guess what fuckwit lots of them are doing it at $20-something dollars a barrel because it costs too much to get it to market. That's Saudi's intention.

    As for refining, you know even less about that, so I would stop even trying to rely on Google because you clearly don't have a clue how to interpret what you are reading.

    The US can refine anything that needs refining. RHCs were invented 20 years ago you dumbarse.

    FACT: The US can be self-sufficient in oil and natural gas whenever it feels it's the preferred economic solution.

    Now, either you understand that simple line or you're an idiot and you can't read.

    Which is it?

    Careful, you're getting sucked into the OhOh/Klondyke 'debate' form of obfuscation, deflection and utter fuckwittery

    Yes, it's easier just to remind everyone that it's one of HoHo's favourite whackjob websites.

    This particular one specialises in "predicting" global recessions every fucking day on the basis that sooner or later they are bound to get it right.

    In this instance, of course, their silly nonsense has nothing to do with it.

    Have I disputed ameristan has a domestic oil and gas extraction and refining industry?

    My statemented was questioning whether it had, has, will have historically, now and in the future , a Self Sufficient oil industry.

    I also provided linked, ameristani government agency "facts", to strengthen my opinion.

    Which you again have failed to provide.



    Research and post what you wish. Possibly a course on presenting relevant info in a legible manner may help the "retards" to assimilate more readily.

    I fear your last two posts here are only accessible to our forum drunks. But that may well be your target audience.
    Why is The U.S. dependence on oil imports even relevant? China is much more reliant on oil imports than the U.S. It is also reliant on raw material and food imports from countries that are allied with the U.S.A.
    Australia alone has the largest deposits of iron ore, Lithium and Uranium in the world. Admittedly we are whores selling to the highest bidder, but if push comes to shove Australia will not back China against the USA as will most western democracies. Russia cannot afford to back China against the west either. China still is heavily reliant on the west for exports. The Chinese flu may have much longer and lasting effects as countries review their supply chains and over dependency on chinese imports, in the medical sector, as well as many others.

    It's precisely why the chinkies have been running around using debt diplomacy and bribery to enslave foreign nations and plunder their resources.

    The fucking chinky parasites.
