It has been difficult this year to find topics on the economy or business to be positive about. For Eid Al Adha I feel that a more optimistic article is called for. So let us look to the future and to what might be.
One happy future is having oil prices to return to US$100+ and remain there. That would have an immense positive effect on the economy. But then that isn’t looking to the future. With, among many other factors, shale oil production costs dropping and Iran increasing output capacity, this isn’t an optimistic future. It is a fantasy.
