Chemistry & the Economy:  2014 Year-End Review

Some excellent questions have already been submitted for my year-end webinar tomorrow with the American Chemical Society.

  • Why have oil prices fallen?
  • Will China’s growth recover in 2015 – and if so, will it be back to the ‘bad old ways’ of stimulus?
  • Why are the stock prices of large chemical companies like Dow Chemical, Lyondell Basel and Westlake Chemical falling so badly, when there is a surplus of oil and when the price of oil and natural gas is low.  Please explain.  Thank you
  • What is the long term effect of cheap NGL feedstocks for plastics production?
  • What is likelihood that crude oil price will drop further – how far?

Please join me tomorrow to discuss these and other critical issues tomorrow in my ‘Year-End Review’ for the American Chemical Society.  It will be moderated by Mark Jones of Dow Chemical.

The webinar takes place on  Thursday @ 2pm – 3pm Eastern US Time
