Winners, Losers and Links

Winners

Commodity Nations – All commodities jumping is a boon to commodity powerhouse nations.

China – China can sit back and observe this Ukraine crisis as a guide for dealing with Taiwan.

MIC – Supplying weapons will be the Western support procedure, so expect orders to skyrocket. Raytheon should make out well.

Losers

Americans – Price of everything will rise. Longer oil stays above $100, the more pain all will feel. Just a few months over $100 shut things down in ‘08.

Ukrainians – Invasion entered a new phase with more shelling. Urban combat could be gruesome. No more petrol in Kiev to get out.

Russian Oligarchs – As the West targets them to inspire regime change, they are experiencing financial attacks.

Everyone worried about Big Tech – Entire nations can be frozen out of everyday processes at the flip of a switch.
