Invest for Peak Oil?
I get many questions about how to invest for peak oil, and then refers to capital investments and not personal preparation and resilience. On the latter point, I get off and the emails from readers who need additional coaching and advice based on their own circumstances.
Certainly nice to have such confidence, but it's basically a question that is impossible to answer correctly on. But that is only an illusion and naive dream that one person can duck peak oil by profit from the phenomenon. One should also distinguish between shorter-term investments and long-term here. For what may work in the short term, odds are it will not work in the long term.
Peak oil is just one of the crises that we must come, let's call it the energy crisis. We have a debt crisis, financial crisis and the food crisis to name a few. There will be alternating deflation and lack of excessive price increases.
As we all saw during the financial crisis, there is a difference in the industrial commodities driven by the economy and, for example, gold.
Despite the lack of it is the economy that determine the price of oil. This means that you can not protect against peak oil by investing in oil and sit still in the boat. For the price of oil and the oil companies will be slaughtered when the energy crisis and the accompanying energy and oil prices once again break the world economy.
