Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
i was talking with my boss the other day.. and he is right.. oil has to go up up up before you can really feel it as "expensive"... travelling is very cheap .. by car.. compared with train ... or planes... One should put the liter of gas at 3 or 4 euros..otehrwise.. it is better to take the car.

So unless they price goes up up up (300-400$)and we can control inflation by moving goods with trains or we will nto see the destruction of demand necessary ...

But it is still good news becuase I expected that we can live with present consumption in the developed countries for more than a decade... 1/4 of emission come from private trasnprotation...drive less move around more with cars compeltely full, or train or bike adn we can keep with the economy going on with basicaly no disruption in otehr sectors... I fear more the bubbles and the lack of train transportation of goods tahn the increase in the price of oil directly...

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
