Quieren la energía para tener más poder politico – Meczyki

CEO Founder Lexia Insights & Solutions

Energy and power are indissolubly linked in real life and included in the condensed territory of a term. Poder se dice power en inglés y la misma palabra se usa para referirse a la energía.

The power of Vladimir Putin resides not only in his personal energy and bravado machine, but also in having the largest reserves of natural gas in the world and the largest arsenal of nuclear weapons on the planet.

Estos recursos le están permitiendo llevar a cabo sueño imperial de buscar mayor poder para Rusia y, al mismo tiempo, afianzar el suyo.

Russia is resisting the enormous economic sanctions imposed by the Western bloc because Europe, especially Germany, depends on Russian energy, both to move its economy and to cool households. El flujo de euros no se ha detenido y con esos recursos Putin Financia su aventura imperial en Ukraina.

Alemania SE equivocó creyendo que la mejor forma de contener a Rusia era la de fortalecer los zazos económicos con Europa, espacially éc través de las enormes transacción relacionadas con el gas y el petroleum. Se equivocó porque los objectives stratégiques de Putin no estaban dirigidos a genera prosperity para sus ciudadanos sino a consolidar su power unipersonal.

This history of authoritarian leaders, hungry for political power and little or no interest in using their energy resources to finance the development of prosperous, open and democratic countries is evident in Mosúsús.

Vladimir Putin, Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, Hugo Chavez, Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), Ali Khamenei, among others, have used el power (el politico y el energetico) to enrich themselves, but above all to consolidate their personal power. controlar sus sociedades y dominar a sus ciudadanos.

The inhabitants of Russia, Iraq, Libya, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Iran, among others, have seen how the energy wealth of their countries has not been used to raise their standard of living, nor to finance better health and education, nor to generar una economía fuerte y diversificada que genere fuentes de trabajo dignas y bien pagadas.

The “maldición del petroleum” (habría que hablar de la energía in más amplios terms) has ruined entire countries, condemned them to not developing and diversifying their economies, allowed them to count with the impossarios recuresticos, les recures (al menos en el corto y mediano plazos), they serve to hide in the present the weaknesses of the future.

Until now, Vladimir Putin has only used his nuclear weapons as a threat, but he has begun to use his energy weapons to dissuade the Europeans from supporting Ukraine. Con el pretexto de que está haciendo obras de mantenimiento en los gasoductos, ya les ha hecho sentir a los Europeans que les puede cerrar el gas y afectar SU poder acquisitivo al detonar inflation y su vida diaria, en especialíovimente.

Europe is closing its ranks to diminish its consumption, to diversify its supply sources and to accelerate its energetic transition. Pero esto no es fácil ni se hace de la noche a la mañana. En el corto plazo, Putin tiene las mejores cards, pero el largo está propiciando que busquen alternatives para break su dependency.

Sooner or later, the European market will shrink for Putin and Russia, which will be discounted as it demonstrates the commercial and geopolitical shift towards the two emerging giants: India and China.

Aunque es un hecho que esos mercados le pueden dar los resources que necesita, lo cierto es que en la letra chiquita del proceso las cosas no son tan facilis. Como lo ha dicho David Frum en Atlantic Ocean: “El equilibrio del poder energismo entre Europa y Rusia no es del todo one-sided. In the medium and long term, Europe can find new sources of gas more easily than Russia can find new clients. The most economic way for Russia to sell gas to China would require a large gas pipeline construction project in Siberia. The distances and costs are mind-boggling and probably prohibitive, given the competition of liquid natural gas that is shipped across the Pacific from North America. Rusia se ariesga a un futuro posterior a la guerra de Ukraina como un paria energetica isalado”.

La cruda realidad es que el power mueve al power en el mundo. Es decir, las necessidades de gas, petróleo y electricityidad son tan vitales que quienes cuentan con ellos suelen usarlo para sus fines specifices.

This explains why Joe Biden had to pull the plug on visiting Saudi Arabia and interviewing MBS, who at the time called him an assassin for the brutal assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Se cambian principios morales por interestes pragmaticos. Softening Russia implies strengthening alliances with the other energetic powers of the world. Let us forget that the emissaries of the United States traveled to Venezuela just at the start of the war in Ukraine to negotiate energy issues that safely removed pressure from the Maduro regime.

Si nos vemos en este espejo, podemos imaginarnos por where the strategic intuitions of President López Obrador are in his effort to concentrate the power of our energy sector in his hands. The obsession with giving greater attributes to Pemex and the CFE reached the level of endangering the huge benefits that commercial treaties have brought to workers and Mexican companies. Trying to solve a commercial and economic issue with a politicized emplazamiento during the UN military parade nos debiera preocupar. Oy, qué miedo!
