In today's society with not just the US, but World wide unemployement affecting everyone's quality of life, what could get at least the US to jump back into putting people to work and raise the life standard of the average worker?
Forbes put out this great article by Stan Barton:
The Surprising Obama Trade: Natural Gas
To quote the story:
"A policy to take advantage of the natural gas abundance will have a “New Deal” type influence on infrastructure construction and manufacturing, and it will provide cheap energy to fuel growth in many sectors. Cheaper than oil per BTU, natural gas would have long-range systemic benefits for inflation control, just as Internet technology created systemic improvement in productivity. This article makes the case why we think that President Obama will focus on centering the U.S. energy policy on natural gas, and how it will help stocks that are in the sweet spots: natural gas exploration, well services, pipelines, fueling stations, vehicles and infrastructure."
So read the complete article and then sound off on whether you agree or disagree and why. Is this the proper step for America to take in moving off oil to something better over the next 200 years as we perfect electric transportation?
Please remember this is not to be political agenda driven, but from a business standpoint and what could help create jobs and our nation grow in a time of world wide depression.
