We talk to Marin Katusa, Chief Energy Investment Strategist at Casey Research, about longer-term developments in oil and gas as game-changers in the energy outlook and the future of shale as a path to US energy independence. Plus, we hear from a lawyer representing MF Global customers and a co-founder of the Commodity Customer Coalition, John L. Roe. And French actor Gerard Depardieu has recently purchased a mansion in Belgium’s francophone region, according to newspaper Le Soir. The move would allow the actor to escape a 75 per cent income tax put in place by the French government. Lauren and Demetri discuss whether French taxation is driving millionaires out of the country in today’s Loose Change.
