сланцевый газ и металлургия США

A long time ago I was studying Russian and my Russian instructor had what I still think is one of the more insightful snippets of political wisdom.  He said (as I can remember): "In your country, economics determines politics; in my country politics determines the economy".  And so it goes I guess.  Everyone seems to say the current economic trends will determine the fall election.  We will see. 


Still the world has changed.  So much that now you find the best industry and investment analysis coming from the Ukraine?  That all just came to mind reading this: Are you ok? сланцевый газ и металлургия США.  The source says it is FundMarket: the Stock Market of Ukraine.

or if you prefer read the Google translation of the same: Are you ok? Shale Gas and Metals in the US.  
It really does cover it all well.   Now ask yourself why there is interest by Ukranian analysts in the state of demand for steel in the US?  Might be because of the growing role of Russian investments in US steel production?

Hard to believe that jobs in the steel industry spin off 7 related jobs. But if true than the affect of the gas and oil industry is huge.
Add in that manufacturing is returning to the US because of cheaper energy. Nat gas in much of the world is trading at $15 to $20 per MCF and only about $2.33 here. Nat gas is driving down the cost of electricity and is also the feedstock for much of the chemical and pharma industries.
