I just wanted to share this funny tidbit before the Bears game comes on! So I'm a cheapass right? There's this economic book for my class . . it costs like 120 bucks used. But the catch is: it's the 11th edition (2004). The 1st edition came out in 1976 and is generally the same, except for references to of course, current economic conditions. In one of the problems: What's Wrong with This Economic Logic? In the next 30 years our consumption of oil will increase fourfold. Yet in the last 30 years, our supply has only doubled. Production is unable to keep up with demand. Unless the government imposes a quota system, we will most assuredly run out of oil in the year 2000. How funny is this? Typical academic making assumptions about a world supply he knows next to nothing about, besides some other academic's estimation? Here it is the year 2006 and we are far from "running out". Kills me what some people will say.
