    Re: What careers may still be profitable during the crash?

Hey; same guy here, just changed my account name.

Thanks for your responses.

Not exactly what I had hoped to hear, but it’s better that way.

I’m still inclined to say that if or when the oil supply gets short and oil shoots up to $500 a barrel, the oil business is going to be a pretty good place to be. Banking and consulting and other white collar jobs may wither, but the world will always need oil, and it’ll need it all the more when there isn’t enough. Am I wrong here? 

P.S.: I could see someone making the argument that it would be better at that point to work on the actual oil rig than to be working at a desk on some M&A transaction, but I haven’t thought this through.
