If I remember correctly, the C's remark was given in the context of a discussion of finances.
Yes, it can be a "moment of inflection or change".
I agree with those who say it relates to the petrodollar and the unveiling of Putin's resource backed currency. Like when they predicted 0 New Year back in 2014, nothing spectacularly transformative happened immediately, though it creates a point of divergence which gains momentum over time along a different trajectory
China’s strict COVID-19 lockdowns will exacerbate global supply chain woes and add to inflation in the coming months, experts say.
President Xi Jinping’s zero-COVID policy is being tested as the country struggles to tame its worst virus outbreak yet. Frustration is rising over food shortages, people being locked down in their homes for weeks, and a policy of killing pet dogs suspected of being infected with COVID.
Now, the economic effects are starting to show. Fuel demand in China is on track to drop 20% this month in the biggest decline since the first wave of COVID-19 lockdowns more than two years ago, sources told Bloomberg on Friday. And global supply chains are beginning to feel the crunch as well.
Even if strict lockdowns in Shanghai are lifted, U.S. ports will likely be slammed with a wave of pent-up cargo from newly reopened factories in China. That will lead to higher freight rates, Jensen says, and worsen congestion at ports worldwide.
Tesco is allowing three items per customer. Waitrose and Morrisons have limited shoppers to two items each. (Cooking oil)
Ukraine is a major exporter of sunflower oil. Many other exporters have suspended exports due to expected shortages also.
A popular supermarket called Morrison’s has apologised to customers after suffering shortages of stocks on Saturday. This picture was taken at 2pm.
This is becoming a regular issue in the UK, with shortages of many common foods.
Can anyone in the UK confirm?
As the United States and its allies stand united against the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Saudi Arabia is siding with Russia. By failing to publicly condemn the invasion and reiterating its commitment to the OPEC+ agreement, the Saudi government exposed cracks in its long-standing partnership with the United States.
Despite entreaties to raise oil production, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman allegedly declined to speak with U.S. President Joe Biden a week after speaking with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Moscow has called on trading partners to switch to national currencies
Russia should increase settlements in national currencies with partner countries, Denis Manturov, head of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade, said at the plenary session of the Innoprom international exhibition in Uzbekistan on Monday.
He was addressing countries within the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), BRICS and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), of which Russia is a member.
According to the minister, in 2021, the growth of Russia’s trade turnover with partners within these associations amounted to about 38%, while together these unions make up roughly half of the global economy. According to Manturov, the future of their successful cooperation depends on how fast Russia’s partners move away from the US dollar and the euro toward national currencies in mutual settlements.
“What is happening today in the global economy and in the world gives us a hint about how we need to rebuild our logistics, industrial cooperation, in what directions we can develop our economies. This [is] de-dollarization, and now we have added de-euroization, that is, the transition to our own currencies in order to be as independent as possible in terms of mutual settlements,” Manturov said.
The minister added that Western Europe and the US are now experiencing hyperinflation, which “affects the development of industrial sectors and the economy as a whole.” And reorienting cooperation within alliances which do not include the EU and the US to national currencies will give Russia’s partners maximum independence in the development of joint projects, he added.
The ruble keeps an upwards trend relative to the dollars. Today the ruble exchange rate is 1 for 0.0135 dollar. In this beginning of the intervention in Ukraine, which occurred on February 24th, it was only 1 to 0.0122. It mean the ruble value relative the dollar increased by 10%:I agree with those who say it relates to the petrodollar and the unveiling of Putin's resource backed currency.
And the best example of financial Judo has been displayed by Russia once again.Hence the increase of 10% (8% + 2%) of the ruble relative to the dollar. In other words, while the ruble purchase power relative to commodities like gold increased by 8%, the dollar purchase power relative to commodities like gold decreased by 2%.

The activation of CERN in Melbourne has been linked to an earthquake and the shooting up the shrine of remembrance.Apparently, CERN was ‘restarted’ on 22/4/22. (mentioned in the DarkJournalist X-124 Deep State in the Hot Zone, Atlantis Rising show last night).
Wondering how it will affect the mix bag of energies.
