The Green Tragedy… and Red Momentum

Dear Fellow Expat: This morning’s CPI reading didn’t surprise anyone except for Paul Krugman.

We're in Uncharted Territory for Oil

The meeting in Vienna last week among OPEC members and their non-OPEC allies, OPEC plus, was intended to help nations reach an agreement on production cuts to extend past the current end date of April 1.
