“Molecules, Missiles, and Markets” Featuring Gabe Collins, Rice University’s Baker Institute
We had a global discussion today centered around China with Gabe Collins, Baker Botts Fellow in Energy & Environmental Regulatory Affairs at Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy. Gabe has a fascinating background and is a Senior Visiting Research Fellow at The Oxford Institute for Energy Studies and also the Co-Founder of China SignPost. He is a Permian Basin native, an expert in Chinese and Russian relations, speaks Mandarin and Russian, and has served as a researcher and China analyst at the Department of Defense. It was a fantastic session and we can't thank Gabe enough for joining us.
Our discussion spanned China's zero-Covid policy, Russian / Ukraine insights, US and European energy policy, potential bumps in the road and instability for the next five years, food security concerns, Taiwan, and other geopolitical possibilities. Gabe was a trooper with our rapid-fire questions and we really enjoyed his insights.
Mike Bradley kicked us off with a look at the markets and a few charts on high yield debt markets and recent OPEC headlines. Colin Fenton discussed the effectiveness of sanctions against Russia and the new inflation regime.
