Im in one of my crazy moods where I am looking up stuff that just is well problems to our economy I cam across this article which I thought was interesting http://www.star-telegram.com/ed_wallace/story/541726.html What are your thoughts on it? I have always thought that the media is largely responsible for rising prices to some extent. I mean serioulsy, nothing good can come from forcasting higher prices and doomsday reports. It just demoralizes the people When these writers say oil will go to 200 and the like, well doesnt that help drive it to those prices? would it have gotten there if they didnt forecast it? In my opinion, doomsday articles should be looked at....i dont know about illegal but something should be done My other question/thought/hatever is that while i believe in capitalism, oil is a matter of national security in the sense it is what fuels our economy. Should the government step in and make the oil industry a "state" institution? much like how public utilities are in a sense? What are your thoughts?
