Whether the oil/energy boom gives the economy more time or not depends upon what the Feds do with the benefits that come from it. Will they apply it towards balancing the budget or will they just ratchet up the pork parade? Perhaps more important than what benefits may be derived from the oil boom is whether rule of law returns to govt. and Wall St. The new Attorney General can continue the corruption embraced by Eric Holder and the current administration or she can do the right thing by the American people and start seeking indictments. Having heard her praise Holder & O, I am not betting she’ll do the right thing. Another huge issue is whether the Fed will continue to manipulate things for the benefit of the big banks and Wall St. to the detriment of the American people.
