Is it true that the world's rapidly growing population is consuming the planet's natural resources at an alarming rate that would require two Earths to satisfy the demand for natural resources by 2030? Marian Tupy and Gale Pooley found that resources became more abundant as the population grew. They also found that resource abundance increased faster than the population. On average, every additional human being created more value than he or she consumed. Shermer, Tupy, and Pooley discuss: why we long for the “good ol' days” • Malthusian trap • Ehrlich's predictions on overpopulation • the birth dearth • the Simon Abundance Index • compound interest • What does it mean for the economy to grow 2–3% a year? • accumulating wealth • what poorer countries need to do to become richer countries • running out of fossil fuels • Obama's “you didn't build that” speech • inflation • electric vehicles • How many people can the Earth sustain? • post-scarcity trekonomics • the future of religion and other social institutions in a superabundant world. Marian Tupy is the editor of HumanProgress.org, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute's Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity, and coauthor of the Simon Abundance Index. He specializes in globalization and global well-being and the politics and economics of Europe and Southern Africa. He is the coauthor of Ten Global Trends Every Smart Person Should Know: And Many Others You Will Find Interesting (Cato Institute, 2020). His articles have been published in the Financial Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, Newsweek, the UK Spectator, Foreign Policy, and various other outlets in the United States and overseas. He has appeared on BBC, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, Fox News, Fox Business, and other channels. Tupy received his BA in international relations and classics from the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, and his PhD in international relations from the University of St. Andrews in Great Britain. Gale Pooley is an associate professor of business management at Brigham Young University-Hawaii. He has taught economics and statistics at Alfaisal Univerity in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Brigham Young University-Idaho; Boise State University; and the College of Idaho. Pooley has held professional designations from the Appraisal Institute, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and the CCIM Institute.

UAE Restores Full Diplomatic Ties With Iran

Six years ago, the UAE and Kuwait downgraded ties with their bigger neighbor Iran to support Saudi Arabia. With no ambassadors, and minimal contact, Iran's isolation and hostility towards its Gulf neighbors grew. Added to that was the US' maximum pressure campaign on Tehran and the war in Yemen. But now regional tensions are easing, as the UAE moves to restore full diplomatic ties with Iran. Relations took a hit back in 2016, after Iranian protesters attacked Saudi diplomatic missions. The unrest was sparked by Riyadh's execution of a prominent Shia scholar. The Gulf states and Iran have been at odds for years. From supporting opposite sides in the war in Yemen, to suspicions over Tehran's nuclear program. But the reappointment of ambassadors from the UAE and Kuwait, together with talks between Iran and Saudi Arabia, have lowered tensions. The diplomatic overtures also follow a wider regional realignment that has seen Türkiye improve its own ties with Israel and the Gulf states. Guests: Sara Bazoobandi Research Fellow at GIGA Ahmet Uysal Director at ORSAM

On COI #316, Kyle Anzalone and Connor Freeman cover the assassination of Darya Dugina, the latest JCPOA news, Tehran's improved diplomatic ties with Arab states, and the recent U.S. bombings in Syria. Connor discusses a car bombing outside Moscow that killed Russian journalist Darya Dugina, nationalist philosopher Alexander Dugin's daughter. Dugina was driving her father's SUV when it was engulfed in flames, it is believed they both were targeted for assassination. The Russian FSB had identified a suspect, a Ukrainian woman who was allegedly working for Kiev's intelligence services and is said to be a member of the Azov Battalion, the infamous neo-Nazi national guard unit. Though Kiev denies these claims and Moscow has not presented sufficient evidence to support its accusations. In the corporate press, Dugin is often painted as Vladimir Putin's “brain.” Though this common claim is widely disputed. As a result of continued Iranian concessions, Washington appears closer to returning to the JCPOA. Iran even dropped its demands regarding closing the IAEA probe into the uranium particles at “undeclared sites.” The EU foreign policy chief described the Iranians' response to his proposal as “reasonable.” However, Republicans and Democrats in Congress are quickly ramping up their organized opposition to the deal, putting pressure on Joe Biden's administration. Tel Aviv is sending high officials to Washington in an attempt to stop the ongoing negotiations. Kyle covers how Iran is seeing tangible progress in its diplomacy with its neighbors, namely Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and now possibly even Saudi Arabia. Both Kuwait City and Abu Dhabi have returned their ambassadors to Tehran. The Iranians want to reengage in talks with Riyadh. They have said the regional climate is building optimism for normalization of ties with the Saudis. This week, the U.S. bombed Shi'ite groups in Syria, killing six to ten people. The Pentagon claimed the targets were connected to the IRGC and involved in a drone attack on a U.S. base earlier this month which killed nobody. Of course, the DOD presented no evidence to back up its claims. CENTCOM said Biden ordered the strike and did it in self-defense but the U.S. illegally occupies about a third of Syria where the troops' presence is strongly opposed. After the strike, a U.S. base in eastern Syria was hit with rockets and some troops were injured, the U.S. followed up with helicopter strikes. Iran has denied involvement with the group the U.S. targeted and condemned the strikes against Syria.

Where are Brent crude prices headed?

Oil prices have slipped below 100 dollars a barrel in the past couple of days. Weighing on crude price is the US Energy Information Administration's weekly inventory report, which suggested an unexpected increase in US crude oil stocks and drop in gasoline demand, despite ongoing summer driving season in the US.  While global central banks, especially the US Federal Reserve, has hiked rates to tame inflation and kill demand, OPEC+ has decided to raise its oil output goal by 100,000 barrels per day starting September. The increase is equivalent to 0.1 per cent of global demand.  It follows weeks of speculation that Biden's trip to the Middle East and Washington's clearance of missile defence system sales to Riyadh and the United Arab Emirates will bring more oil to the world market. Notably, the increase of 100,000 bpd will be one of the smallest since OPEC quotas were introduced in 1982. Ravindra Rao of Kotak Securities, for instance, expects prices to slip further in the immediate short-term. “Crude has hit fresh lows which indicates weaker sentiment. However, supply concerns may keep a floor to price close to $90/bbl level,” says Ravindra Rao, VP & Head of Commodity Research, Kotak Securities Brent prices have been volatile thus far in 2022, as the oil market reacted to the geopolitical developments amid recession fears.  Paul Hickin, Director of S&P Global Commodity Insights expects the Brent oil to climb and remain in a range of 100 - 120 dollars a barrel in the medium-term. Speaking to Business Standard, Hickin said, OPEC+ decision is a symbolic nod to the US. Spare capacity is at historic lows. Weak demand amid recession fears in the US and Europe. Russian supply has not come off as expected. Oil likely to stay over $100/barrel.  On Friday, all eyes will be on the outcome of the Reserve Bank of India's meeting on interest rates. Analysts expect the Indian central bank to hike repo rate between 35 - 50 basis points. That apart, stock specific action will continue amid the ongoing result season.

The company is in somewhat dire straits, holding around $1 billion in debt and finishing off 2021 with a deficit of nearly $91 million for the year. Despite their recent struggles, Aston Martin revealed last year that they hope to have their first EV available sometime in 2025. To help facilitate this, they are said to be weighing other manufacturer platforms to help expedite their journey to a finished product. Lucid Motors, Mercedes Benz and Rimrac are believed to be favorites."2 Saudi Arabia Concludes its Participation at Farnborough International AirshowSaudi Arabia concluded its participation at Farnborough International Airshow (FIA 2022), according a report in Asharq Alawsat. The five-day show was held in the United Kingdom, and witnessed wide-scale participation from across the globe. Under the national “Invest Saudi”, the Saudi Pavilion was organized and led by the General Authority for Military Industries (GAMI). It comprised GAMI, the Saudi Ministry of Investment, the World Defense Show (WDS), and the Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI). Ahmad Al-Ohali, GAMI Governor, said the core message to global stakeholders was it has never been easier to localize business.  Also announced was that the Saudi defense sector localization rate grew from 2% in 2018 to 11.7% in 2021.3) Saudi Arabia Plans Air-Cargo Roadshows to Lure Amazon, DHLSaudi Arabia plans to stage a number of roadshows in the next 12 to 18 months as it seeks to persuade the likes of Amazon.com Inc., Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. and Deutsche Post AG's DHL to help scale up air-cargo and distribution operations, Bloomberg reports. The Mideast country will invite private companies to establish partnerships and set up freight-forwarding and warehousing activities, said Mohammed Fahad Alkhuraisi, vice president for strategy at the Saudi General Authority of Civil Aviation.4) YouTube removes offensive ads upon request by Saudi Arabia regulatorsYouTube removed certain offensive advertisements which were described as inconsistent with Islamic and Saudi societal standards upon the request of media regulators in Saudi Arabia, Arabic news media Bloomberg Asharq reported on Monday, citing a YouTube spokesperson. On Sunday, Saudi Arabia's General Commission for Audiovisual Media (GCAM) and the Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) released a statement demanding the Google-owned video-sharing platform remove the offensive advertisements. A spokesperson from YouTube told the broadcaster that accounts of the advertisers who broadcasted the offensive content had been shut down.5) 40 Saudi colleges to convert into applied collegesThe Saudi Council of Universities Affairs has decided to convert 40 theoretical colleges, located in various governorates, into applied colleges specialized in health, technology and engineering, Zawya reports. By this, the number of applied colleges in the Kingdom would rise to 75. The council approved the classification of the model Saudi universities into five categories. These are comprehensive, pedagogical, research, specialized, and applied. These criteria aimed to enhance differentiation between universities, raise the level of specialization and focus, enhance the efficiency of their operation, raise the level of added value to society and the nation with a road map to focus strategies for these universities, and to improve the quality of education outputs in line with the requirements of the national, regional and global labor market.6) Saudi Arabia most positive on its country's economic outlook: SurveySaudi Arabia is the most positive on its country's economic outlook with 93 percent rating it as good, according to the Ipsos Global Consumer Confidence survey.

Featured speakers: Ambassador Patrick Theros, Ambassador Robert Gallucci, Dr. Kenneth Katzman, Anna Jacobs, and Professor David Des Roches. Synopsis: U.S.-GCC relations have become more complicated. U.S. signals of reduced interest in the Middle East and the increase in American oil and gas production to the highest record ever just as the Russian invasion of Ukraine exploded on the scene have strained the relationship more than ever before. In actions unprecedented in the U.S.-GCC relationship, both Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) and UAE Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed (MBZ) snubbed President Joe Biden's request for a telephone call. As of this writing, the response of both the Kingdom and the Emirates to Biden's request to increase oil production in order to dampen oil price rises and allow Europe to reduce its dependence on Russian energy seems to have fallen on deaf ears. Riyadh and Abu Dhabi appear reluctant to end their commitment to the OPEC+ agreement with Russia to limit oil exports despite rapidly increasing oil prices worldwide, an increase with serious political and economic ramifications in the United States. To state that these developments have provoked great speculation about the future of U.S.-GCC relations would be an understatement. U.S.-GCC relations have had their frictions in the recent past. America has expressed concerns for more than a decade about growing economic and, in some cases, security and geopolitical, ties between all the GCC states and China. The decision of the Biden Administration to find a way to restore the JCPOA, Obama's 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran from which President Trump had withdrawn the U.S. in 2019, went down badly with those GCC states which had hoped for continued U.S. confrontation with Tehran. They saw the JCPOA as a signal that Washington sought to improve relations with Iran, reversing decades of unquestioned U.S. support for the Gulf Arab states and unbending hostility towards Tehran. Combined with Obama's announced “pivot to Asia” in 2009, U.S. withdrawal from Iraq, and American support for the “Arab Spring” anti-authoritarian uprising, one can understand the concerns of some Gulf monarchies that the U.S. no longer cared about their security. Also, long-term contradictions in GCC views of the U.S. have resurfaced. On one hand, Biden rewarded Qatar, naming it a Major Non-NATO Ally, for its long-time loyalty in supporting U.S. activities in the region –not least facilitating the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. On the other hand, the U.S. continues to publicly criticize the Saudi-led war in Yemen, although it continues to provide material support to Abu Dhabi and Riyadh to defend against Yemen's Houthis attacks on both countries. What do the GCC states expect from Washington? Are they allies or partners or “is it complicated”? How do the different GCC countries see their bilateral relationships with the U.S.? Is there a collective GCC view? Most importantly, how does Washington view its interests in the region?

US President Joe Biden didn't get much out of his recent controversial trip to Saudi Arabia, says Princeton University Bernard Haykel, who frames it as a "big win" for the Saudis and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman himself. On the GZERO World podcast, Ian Bremmer speaks with Haykel, an expert on all things Saudi and an MBS confidante. He explains how MBS consolidated power over the kingdom and its strategic value to the US in the Middle East. They also discuss MBS's strategy to modernize his country, the prospects for future warmer ties with Israel, and why the crown prince will avoid situations like the Khashoggi murder in the future.   The Saudis "were able to show that they have tremendous convening power" by bringing in all the Gulf leaders, thus demonstrating that Riyadh is the most important player in the region, offering political stability. The Saudi crown prince now looks less like a pariah and more like a partner of the US.

Highlights:     “Biden's little bike incident has really become a metaphor for the entirety of his administration. And few examples of that can match the colossal failure that was his Saudi Arabia trip over the weekend.” “Rather than drill at home, rather than put Americans to work in energy production and independence, Biden is bending the knee to nations like Saudi Arabia in what turned out to be a futile effort in getting them to increase their per-day oil production.” “Biden claimed that the prince agreed to increase oil production, but Saudi officials very, very quickly smacked that down. They made it very clear that Saudi Arabia would in fact not be pumping more oil!” “The Dems are desperate! Things are so bad that even AOC, is in the top 10 list of their potential candidates. That's how desperate they've become!” Timestamps:      [02:22] On the #Biden-Bike-Challenge in social media [03:20] Biden's latest disaster in Riyadh [05:43] The growing calls for Biden to step down and the negative press for Kamala [09:17] Who is going to replace Biden in 2024  Resources:  Get your own MyPillow here.

US President Joe Biden visited Saudi Arabia not only to discuss oil but also to pressure Riyadh to cut ties with China and Russia. This comes after Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) killed key CIA ally Jamal Khashoggi and purged rivals in the royal family who were most loyal to Washington.

Republicans blame President Joe Biden ... the president blames Russia and greedy companies ... but we may now, finally have the right group to blame for stubbornly high inflation: MILLENNIALS! We'll explain and go in depth on why high prices are the fault of our younger colleagues. The U.S. Secret Service is denying it, but there are now several confirmed reports that agents deleted several text messages centered around the January 6th, even after they were ordered to preserve all communications about the insurrection. And it's going to hit 100-degrees, and then some, in several spots across Northern Europe over the next week ... and these are places that aren't supposed to get that hot, even in summertime. Is climate change to blame? Speaking of climate change, at the end of today's In Depth we'll look at how Senator Joe Manchin has once again stuck it to his fellow Democrats by refusing to support sweeping legislation meant to stem the effects of climate change. We'll look at some very interesting research that links violent crime rates and heart health in big cities. And the man described as a butcher and blamed by President Biden for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman got a widely noticed ... and widely criticized ... fist bump from the president in Riyadh today.

Saudi Arabia opened its airspace to Israeli aircraft early Friday, as the first signs of a nascent normalization process between Jerusalem and Riyadh appeared to take shape. With US President Joe Biden set to fly to Jeddah from Israel later in the day, Saudi Arabia's civil aviation authority said in a tweeted statement that it was announcing “the decision to open the Kingdom's airspace for all air carriers that meet the requirements of the authority for overflying.” The statement did not mention Israel, but Biden is expected to announce from Jeddah the successful brokering of a complicated regional deal that will see Saudi Arabia take steps toward normalization with Israel while taking possession of two islands from Egypt. The normalization measures include Saudi Arabia opening its airspace to Israeli flights to the Far East in addition to rolling out direct flights between Israel and Saudi Arabia for Muslim pilgrims, a Middle East diplomat said late Thursday, confirming the deal has been clinched. Saudi Arabia only began allowing Israeli airlines to fly over its territory in a special air corridor for flights to and from the UAE and Bahrain after the Abraham Accords were signed. The change means flights to and from India, Thailand, China, and other locations in the east can cut over the Saudi peninsula, saving hours of flight time.
