i a with this is boon bought the one bed the show you can't afford to miss abra to boring. washington coming up to the opec plus cartel has decided to maintain a steady boost in oil output. as the global energy crisis continues to heat up, straight ahead, we'll discuss the decision and the impact that will have blood global market are most slee up this week. but how did the major interview fair will break it all down?
as the price, the big coin catch popped early friday morning to report that a major us supermarket cape would begin to accept the crypto as a form of payment. but there was just one problem that report turned out to be fall later on. blue bus, co host, ben swan and christy i both lender insights to the spike and other developments in the sector. in fact. so today we'll dive right in and we leave the program with opec plus, taking to with plan to gradually increase oil production as prices rise. amid the energy crunch. now, despite pressure from the white house, the cartel decided to move forward with its plans to boost production by just 400000 barrels per day. over the next month, prices for international benchmark. brent crude and west texas intermediate both dog gains of roughly 3 percent on the day each sitting well above $80.00 per barrel . gasoline prices in the united states have served to 7 year highs, averaging $3.40 doubt or cents per gallon nationally with some areas,
the price is around $4.00. gas and diesel prices have also hit record high in europe as well. on thursday, the white house deputy press secretary with asked about the decision from opec plus . as you remember, we engage with relevant opec plus members a few months ago as well. urging a compromise solution to allow proposed production increases to move forward, which they did, but more can be done. now is the time for majority country producers to stabilize energy prices and ensure high prices do not hamstring the current global economic recovery. and joining us that discusses kirk edwards, the former chair of the permian basin petroleum association. kirk, i want to get to the white house here in just a few minutes, but i want to start with this opec decision. and we gotta get to the why. what is the rationale behind the refusal of opec plus to increase production as prices continue to rise? they were 1st of all, thank you for having me again,
or to visit the on this. but you know, to me, opec, seeing all the commodities across the world, they see still you're seeing coal, you're seeing the refrigerator is everything going up and cries and so gases, donovan price to so i think they think things are very rarely priced. because when we got up double digits, natural gas, especially in europe, is doing the triple digits. and so i think the cartoon was kind of happening where things are right now. are they essentially just saying we know people will pay these prices at this point? and until prices get to a point where they'll stop paying, we're just going to keep at our current plan. we'll give it a year ago. we were minus $37.00 a barrel. not many of us made much money in 2020. i think everybody's trying to get back on and even for this year and, you know, to me again, opec is seeing the pandemic still taking place germany just now. so there are some restrictions now to, for every your cases so covered. that's not
a way which really does hurt the energy usage in all the world. so i think everybody's still a little bit aware of what happened last year that it didn't happen again. and the worst thing that can happen is they plugged the marketing market in early 2020, and the price go back down to 30. that did not doing anybody any good. it's in the energy business now. and as we mentioned, the u. s. has been kind of hyper critical of the car towel, calling for more production as the country has made pledges towards reducing reliance on fossil fuels. it's often pointed out that the administration has done everything possible to stop us producers from drilling. so if the u. s. were to change those policies and kind of open that up. would there be that relief on oil markets? well, so what's happened is i done their best to get people to dissuade people from drilling in the united states. now, you know, try to ban offshore drilling, drilling apparel and here in the united states, they're putting in mentoring policies just this week to condemn the oil and gas producers and united states. but yeah, on the other hand,
they're asking the dirtiest nations in the world that produce oil like canada and russia to, to increase more. so if you really mixed with everybody's getting and know nobody can just turn the tap and make no will. and we have to put out a whole bunch of really, rick, you have to have a lot of capital. and one thing you're seeing right now with domestic pollution in the united states is there is a discipline now not to over drill like we did back in the 2014 to 2018 time period. so yeah, we just can't turn it right back on and, and, and that's why we're down about a 1000000 and a half barrels a day, just in the permian alone and national court. all that we could have in this country today. the policy of administration don't want us to do it well, and you know, a lot of times when we were talk the analyst during the trump administration at the beginning of the pandemic when oil was where it was, you know, you'd hear that old adage, either the cure for low prices is low prices or the care for high prices, in this case is high prices. but in this current climate is that no longer the case?
well, so what's happening is everybody's coming back. alex over a year saying so much industry pick back up, people are going out to the people are traveling. and so this is a different paradigm that we've had in the past years with cheaper prices and things like that. and again, it's not just oil is everything we're seeing, the inflation is running rapid right now in every commodity which you go to the store just trying to find things right now. so i don't think this is all price doing what it's doing right now is going to dissuade anybody from traveling or doing the else they have been doing in the past. just because it's such a strategic national asset worse, but we can't get rid of it. and are we just essentially at this point is going to have to deal with this until, you know, things kind of stabilize. well, i think that's exactly what's gonna happen. okay. they can flood the market. i can grab a price on the $30.00. but again, i think they're very happy with where things are right now. and without the
american producers putting a whole bunch of drilling rigs out there, which they're not going to do, you're going to see a paradigm of the oil price to be in this market. unless i decide to, to flood the market in the future and the way they're talking the way they're dealing with everybody. right? i don't think that's gonna happen. so we make the higher process through 2022 right now. and again, that's what the industry needs to be healthy, but again, we're here so much administration against us. i don't think anybody wants to back to our wallets in this business, just to try to survival you. well, obviously we understand that the folks in the business don't want that, but obviously american to, as you have mentioned, are facing higher prices across the spectrum when it comes to food, other commodities that they're dealing with. and now they have to pay at the pump as well. i'm sure they're trying to beg for a little bit of relief there at some point. now, obviously, kirk, you know, there's the big cap, 26 conference that was going on in glasgow, scotland this week. and $450.00 banks and other financial firms promise to shift
their businesses more towards clean energy. a lot of that goes to no longer financing the fossil fuel sector. so how is that going to affect oil moving forward? what have you? sorry, well, i mean you've got 450 people over there on their private jets lounge yet a jet fuel. ready to get there, nobody drove their electric flame food or electric blaine to get there. so it's kind of, it's an archie more on for people to think that we could just shift from oil and natural gas into wind and solar power because it just can't happen overnight. i mean, if everybody issue understands, we need all the about when he, every bit of his energy to, to go, we're in this country, but it's just not an overnight thing that can happen. and it's a tragedy for us to be thinking this can happen because the consumer, especially the low income person, is going to see higher heating, males are higher gasoline bills and directly because of what's going on in this
administration. and the lack of people being in a row in this country and as begging opec in russia for them for pollution, all for canada to there's something wrong with that equation to me. absolutely. well, kirk edwards, i appreciate your expert insight. we'll continue to follow these stories moving forward. former chair of the permian basin petroleum association. kirk edwards, thank you so much. i appreciate you having a of global markets are mostly up this week as we continue keep an eye on rising inflation while central banks, layout future policy. and the world attempts to ease the pressure of the ongoing energy crisis. while we have a lot of green arrows on the board this week, we start out slow in russia. the mo x is just about flat for the week. inflation in russia jumped to its highest level and nearly 6 years in october, jumping 8 point one percent for the month, according to data released by ross that on wednesday the number is concerning. as

economy to grow by 3 percent down from initial estimates of 4 percent, but expects the economy to grow by 5.5 percent next year. in south africa, the all share is up, the nation is governing party. the african national congress faced the worst election results of $994.00, taking only 46 percent of the boat in municipal actions, raising questions about economic policies moving forward, the ran week and against the dollar on that news. moving to europe, we have a green arrow in london for the, for the up about one percent for the week. as we have previously mentioned, the bank of england defied expectations by keeping interest rates near 0 to close out the week, oil majors b p. and shall both i significant gain. i made rising oil prices. banks however, did close the weak down on that central bank decision. the german dax and french kac. they're both up for the wake up around 2 and 3 percent, respectively. europe's largest con, we could face issues as concerns about the global supply chain. industrial

the number that the quote me the for years we were told that way to stimulate the economy was to print money. and then when it became obvious that printing money was actually causing economic couple decline and bank failure. they had to come up with a narrative and that was the green narrative, the e s. g narrative, the cop annual gathering narrative. and you're pointing out that you're just switching chairs on the titanic. you're just going from one particular way to destroy the global economy using via money to a different way to destroy the global economy using theat money.
it's been 30 years since the soviet union collapsed in miss couple other go to chill the one to work with. so, so shown where you swore trust someone toiler from ukraine was one of the independent states that emerged from the ruins of a super awesome. would you also get on google greens? come on board. surely confusing some of the i can last new leash unless you did a better one or a service for the teacher developing and finishing up the should with watch at the past 3 decades. been like for ukraine, eye witnesses were cool. the events. this will be more or less so judicial with our new scenario that order. i'm not sure, but i did that for months with modern windows and what other forces were at play? producers whom you show in sion machine, those them you put in the care what it americans when it shows up in was
a version. so please take a look at ukraine 30 years out the gaining independence organism via phone with us in yet. but unity recorded live a will. it could be issues ok of lush williston, holding still for a welcome back. there was a brief spike in the crypto currency world as big coin cache jumped nearly 5 percent on friday after a press release. and now is that grocery chain, kroger would begin accepting the crypto? the only problem is that printing press release was a fake. the fraudulent announcement which was issued on p r. news wire and appeared on kroger's website, claimed the growth retailer would be accepting b. c,
h for all in store and online purchases. starting on the 1st of december after the company explained that the press release was fraudulent. bitcoin cash gave up all of its gains on the day and actually dipped below the price where it all started. joining us out, discuss our bu, bus co host and our favorite crypto analysts, ben swan and chris, the i. christy, i want to start with you here. this is, this is kind of fraudulent press release. had gone on before with a recent one in september that claim that wal mart would begin accepting light coin . what is the purpose of putting out these kind of raja releases? well, the purpose behind this is the same as any pump and dumb scheme that the crypto markets learn from the equity markets. these things happen all the time and the equity markets, let's not forget because when you had the rumour mill and false publications saying that o x, y, z is acquiring this company or the f d a has approved this pharmaceutical, this has page pass. stage 3,
any big catalyst event is right for making rumors out of and so the cut the market learned from the equity market because this is really effective because what's my bad? even if it's not true, it's a mistake, not a crime to spread a rumor. so this is just a pump strategy for traders take advantage of the brainless algo bots because like the equity markets, the crypto markets now have its fair share of bots to that trade systematically. and they scan all the new sites and social media sites for key words and statements for direction. and bots aren't going to know if something's true or false. so when it comes across the headline, we key words like that. it's going to be super bullish and start buying right away . not just spots, but a lot of human traitors to can differentiate between real news and fake news, and they get sucked into this pump. so the pump creates an opportunity for the creative, the rumor to then sell out at a massive gain before the price eventually falls back to even. so it's just essentially a little ploy that gets used every so often. is it illegal as pump and on schemes
are illegal? but technically this is just storing the room or pot and letting everybody else run around like headless chickens trying to figure out if it's real, while the perpetrator of it caches out of bed. i've played a little devil with advocate here. is there a little difference between a rumour mill and actually issuing something that appears as if it came from a company? if it's just a sources are saying that that might happen? that's one thing. but if it's a press release that is issued, that basically says kroger that now thing that isn't that a whole different story, right? well, to some extent, i think it is a different story, but what's different here also is that if a, if a company releases some information to say, you know, looks like we're about to get the approval and your stock goes up. it's easy to trace who was the source of that, right. the problem with crypto currency is that you don't know the sources who created this in the 1st place. the other thing about the story that's interesting, brent is that apparently this announcement appeared on kroger's website. how did it in the kroger's website, if it was a fake press release, put into p r. newswire?
did someone at kroger actually upload this onto their website and release it as well? and that would give a lot more credence to it as well because it came from this. and again, we don't know who started it originally. i'm not sure you ever know who actually started it originally, because you can anonymously create these p r news wire. news releases with no problem. and christy, i'm sorry, i don't want to want to do all this cuz we do have several other stories to get to . but i do have a question for you on that because, you know, i know you're all into the blocks and you understand that. could you actually see if there was a whale who sold heavy amounts of bitcoin cache, you know, kind of, as it peaked, it kind of at least have an idea of what, while it might have been behind it. absolutely, you can actually try to see if there have been big wales or, or an essentially a couple big well spreading out their transaction equally across multiple exchanges . we still have no idea who the perpetrators were, but the fact that the stock, but the price actually went up so high and then came down so quickly and actually dipped below the starting price actually indicates a lot of heavy liquidations heavy cell. so you can bet that
a lot of big wallace for big wind cash had sold out on this peak right now. but i want to get to this other story here because meanwhile, incoming new york city mayor eric adam said on thursday that he will take his 1st 3 paycheck them bitcoin when he takes off in january. what's behind this move? yeah, well it's interesting i, by the way, he should be taking a lot more than the 1st 3. take all of them in the coin. i mean, that's the way to do it. but listen to what he's essentially trying to do with compete with the mayor of miami, the mirror miami made a statement recently that his next paycheck next one paycheck was going to be in big coin because miami is trying to attract not only crypto currency, but block chain based businesses to come there and to kind of make miami, the hub of block chain. and so the incoming mayor of new york says, no, no forget about miami, come to new york, we're going to do the same thing. he's trying to attract those businesses as well, and you've got to remember, it's a lot more than crypto currency, right? it's more than big coin is more than like coin. and although is about the block chain industry that is fast growing, it's one of the fastest growing industries in the world right now. there are tons
of jobs in this space. and so they're trying to, we try not only the industry but the jobs that come with it and all, all the tax revenue that comes with bringing those businesses in. so the incoming mer adams says he wants to make it very clear. he wants new york to be the hub of crypto currency and block chain, but he's got a lot of competition in that space to track those business. and christy payments, firms square said, and it's 3rd quarter earnings letter thursday that it's peer to peer payments, service cash, i generate $1820000000.00 of bitcoin revenue in the quarter, and 42000000 dollars of growth profit. how much of squares future will surround bit corn and maybe other crypto currency a lot square, but a lot on their coin and big ones going to be the company's main growth driver for the near future cars. let's face it, the payment up space. it's pretty saturated already. we're talking about standard payment processing. so there really isn't that much growth left florida in traditional payments between apple pay pay pal who already owns and mo and square
who owns cash up. the space is already done. so square is rely on bit going to continue to deliver as high double digit growth numbers as purchase. more than $200000000.00 worth of the crypto currency over the past 2 quarters this year. and big point transactions now account for about 80 percent of squares revenue. so square apparently is betting all in on bit quite not other cook does since it says that it doesn't plan on offering you those other currencies. aside from the main big point and that the company is also focused on building it's hardware, wallet and continuing plans to allow individuals and businesses to mind bitcoin. so looks like this is going to be a very happy bet. it looks like they are going all in, and i don't blame them because aside from crypto currencies like they are, they are kind of like a one trick pony. it's not like they offer any other services other than payment processing. so aside from big coin, there is no other place that it can look to for growth since the market is very, very saturated between all of the u. s. companies that we have here, as well as all the pay and we chat over in asia, seems kinda crazy that
a payment services company would be trying to diversify, as we all know. they're taking a little bit of the top of all of those transactions that go on, but bad. i got one more for you to have about 45 seconds left. but el salvador, the president, has announced that the country will use some of its profit from id bitcoin, holding to find a 20 schools in the central american country. how is the r a, how is this already taking place when else avenue just adopted bitcoin to the national currency just a few weeks ago? yeah, they did. and a few weeks ago the prize a big coin was a lot lower. so they went out and they bought a bunch of big coins and by the way, they've added another 400, i believe. so the country owns you know, about 121500 big point of the nation. and it's worth about $69000000.00 right now. and so because they saw the price going up, they're taking what? because turn the christy uses a lot, right. they're taking profits. they're taking profits. they've already built a big veterinary clinic in the country with it. now they're going to build schools with it in the president says, i'm glad i did not listen to all those naysayers who said don't buy bitcoin, don't go in on bitcoin. because look how the returns are already helping the
country to move forward. absolutely, and i have a lot more on that, but we'll try to get to it next week. boom bus. kristi i and ben swan, thank you so much for your insight today. thank you. and finally, facebook's effort to rebrand itself and turn a new leaf has well, kind of hit a wall here as the social media giants. new title of meta has already been claimed by another company in the tech sector. it turns out that a smaller computer firm in arizona had already applied for a trademark on that name, met a pc found for the name in august more than 3 months before the duck berg lead enterprise decided to save faith as the news broke, the heads of the meta p c offered up the naming rights, but with a catch claiming that they would not give it up to the nu metal for less than 20000000 dollars. they're technically are some ways by which facebook could acquire the naming rights. but as of now, the fate of the met averse kind of remains in flux, and that's it for this time you can catch boom bus on demand on the brand new port
would be the app available as smartphones and tablets. google play in the apple app store by searching portable tv port downloaded app portable that tv will see you next. me, i choose the british and american governments have often been accused of destroying lives in their own interest. what you see in this nice techniques is the state devising, messes, to end, essentially destroy personality of an individual lifetime. means this is how one doctors, theories were allegedly used in psychological warfare against the prisoners deemed a danger to the state. that was the foundation for the method of logical
interrogation, psychological torture, the ca, disseminated within the u. s. intelligence community and worldwide among allies for the next 30 years. and how the victim say they still live with the consequences today. oh my roof monitors the compliance well g, 20 members with their commitments. they made up their all last summer. and what we have found is that a year later on the even the wrong summer countryside comply unprecedentedly high level 85 percent. and i'm optimistic that because that break shaw cold it is to always i think will get high compliance with the wrong commitments on cold too. mm
ah, the headline serenity, the french catholic church admits it, bears a quote, institutional responsibility for decades of child sex abuse by clergyman of one abuse. victim tells auntie justice needs to be served. now it is necessary for the pope himself to recognize the institution responsibility of the church to recognize all its crimes and olivia sentences that has committed. what is happening in the mediterranean is a real genocide that weighs on the conscience of european states and the european union. an italian may accuse us the you of putting lives at risk with its failure to stem, the influx of migrants across the mediterranean. it's really hard to breathe. i guess this was real war might look like smoke grenades, nuclear submarines and
