Five paragraphs in and we can read ...

"If you have never heard of the petrodollar system, it will not surprise me. It is certainly not a topic that makes it's way out of Washington and Wall Street circles too often."

This guy doesn't even know that it's not "it's way out of ... " but "its way out of ... " yet Jerry Robinson's some kind of know-all when it comes to the complicated workings of whatever it is he is going to tell me all about? I do not think so!

A "petro dollar" is an ordinary dollar paid to a producer of crude oil, so that it's just a dollar, right? Where does the excitement come in? Me, I'm okay; I have lots of cowrie shells saved up from my time in West Africa, so whatever trouble this ignorant prophet is predicting, "Bring it on!" say I.
