The behavior of global energy markets is often a harbinger of economic well-being or malaise. So the ability of policy makers and industry players to infer the “unknown knowns” that could signal significant paradigm shifts is critical. The discovery and exploitation of shale gas opportunities would seem to bear this phenomenon out.
