Kevin Lings, Stanlib Chief Economist

We didn’t benefit when the oil price fell, because the rand weakened. The converse is now true.

If the oil price continues to rise it will draw more people back into fracking which will drive the price back down again.

Kevin Lings, Stanlib Chief Economist

I think oil prices at this level are better for the world economy.
