Sauds know the age of oil isn't gonna last that long so they are getting their grubby little hands in all sorts of places around the world. I hope the sauds fall and then a democratic people's republic of Arabia can have all these shares in different nations. Sadly don't see any indication of that happening soon.
Yup, the writing's on the wall. Increased oil prices are forcing countries into investing in other energy sources and Saudi Arabia is well aware that their days of relying on huge oil profits are numbered. It's funny because they are making some solid investments. It's just a shame that they're the ones doing it. Oh well, silver lining this may bolster my stocks in Nintendo.
