Russia Counter-Sanctions “Unfriendly Nations” by Requiring Gas Payments in Roubles; Dallas Fed Predicts 2022 Global Recession if Russian Energy Supply Remains Restricted


From the comments:

Michael Hudson March 24, 2022 at 9:56 am

Your explanation was wonderfully clear, Yves. I’ve circulated it to my UN colleagues after a morning meeting with the Near East and India for a meeting. They are seeing dedollarization as a means of de-indebting themselves, especially in view of the rising energy and food prices that will make payment of their foreign debt impossible.
The IMF is trying to give them SDRs to pay dollar bondholders, but the representatives I spoke with today look forward to a Eurasian-backed alternative set of institutions to the IMF and World Bank, starting with a kind of Clean Slate. That was their motive for inviting me to the meeting.
The amazing thing is that it is the US itself that has chosen to dedollarize the world — and perhaps with it, its dollarized debt burden for the Global South.

Maybe they got held up at the scales

I read last night that the Barstow group was down to 6 5 trucks by Vegas and was thinking maybe they could combine all of the convoys or something but I guess they just called it quits.

I should reverse search the images on FB to find the source, but I don't care enough. 

some of the claims were chuckle worthy- 50,000 gallons of fuel donated, a tip jar w/ $25,000 for the drivers, a donated bbq feed for 2500 people...

So the convoy fizzled out but my guy came through. I do wish it would have been something that took off with the convoy crowd but even without that it still makes me laugh so maybe in a while it will start to take off on its own. They also called it "The Honkening." :hattip:

Did you know that "Canada Goose" is trademarked? I wish the USPTO would wake up.

My brother in law posted something about it last week, a convoy leaving from Barstow. I'll admit, the junk little graphic he shared had a little joke that I thought was hilarious. I couldn't draw it well so I hired a guy online and he's taking for ev er.  I had hoped to sell a ton to these guys but it's funny just on its own, I think. 

Anyway I'm gonna try to cash in. /ethics

Millions of employees are mandated to be injected

It's funny, in Chicago the Mayor ended the vaccine mandate for customers (employees must still be injected)
However, rather than yet another fight with the teachers union, they left the mask mandate for students and schools until August.
She just was not up for another fight with the unions.

The unions want the masks and injections.


Sounds reasonable

At $4.00 -$5.00 per gallon for gas and (I presume) they are running without a load? That is one expensive Don Quixote exercise. 


Maybe the Freedom Convoy will be distracted and instead picket/blockade/hold hostage a fuel pump?  Unfortunately, I reckon this Convoy can probably raise more than enough money to pay for fuel and much more.

If Washington DC police are on top of things, they will block and prevent the Freedom convoy from entering. 

Curious:  Has this Freedom Convoy promised to not leave Washington DC until the mandates are revoked?   That is the anti-democratic part of the Convoy to Ottawa that really upset more than a few of us.
