Will a Saudi Aramco IPO Ever Happen? | Inside Story

Saudi Arabia has reportedly delayed its plans to list shares of its state-owned oil company Aramco on the stock market.

Media reports say the initial public offering has been postponed indefinitely. But the Saudi government has disputed this. Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih says the government is committed to conducting the IPO, at the 'appropriate circumstances and time'.

The plan to float around five percent of the oil company was expected to be the world's largest stock sale; and it lies at the heart of Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman's vision to transform the economy.

So, where does this leave Saudi Arabia's efforts to raise money and diversify its economy?

While Corporations Enjoy Their Tax Cuts, American Workers Are Losing Everything

On the surface, the US economy appears to be doing quite well right now, though most credible economists have been warning us for months that things are about to come crashing down. And one of the reasons for this impending crash is the fact that American workers are getting less pay, fewer benefits, and NOW Americans could see dramatic cuts to programs like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Those cuts are coming at the same time that the Trump administration is trying to unilaterally cut taxes AGAIN for the wealthy. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.
