Further, private investment can be "crowded in": The state of equilibrium is maintained, even though the forces acting on the system are in a continuous slate of change, as long as the net effect of these changing forces is such as not to disturb the established position of equilibrium.
If a cartel of oil producers decide to jack up the global price of oil, the domestic price of oil will move with it translated to local currency. I have now changed the article by replacing the paragraph with a more correct one, and I hope it is more clear and succinct than my suggestion above!
