Post 191

A snapshot of what’s going on in the world’s economy.  Financial Ructions and book reviews can be a bit more technical so feel free to skip them.  See disclaimer at the end of this note.

Summary

  • More signs of the US economy weakening but also of more people travelling abroad.
  • If the economy doesn’t slow, we could see oil prices rising higher for some time as supply keeps getting cut.
  • The Technology sector seems to be contracting in some areas.
  • Higher interest rates continue to turn the screws.
