Well, *some* are. :-)

But more to the point... given the OPEC history, wouldn't it have been better if these events never had occured? Real output was lost, welfare suffered.

A non-persistent mess is still a mess.


sure but we live in the real world and need to compare likely alternatives... in other words lets compare learning mechanisms rather than idealised responses.

The problem Gabriel refers to is very relevant. Real output was lost and, perhaps more important, energy research became more expensive. At a time when alternative enrgy research may have held even higher interest than it does now the cartel was strangling research from every direction.

It erally is a shame that we don't have better solar and wind power. I'm not objected to oil--I think it's a wonderful limited resource--but I have to say there's nothing like the freedom of no refueling, no power bill, no price fluctuations. I think we need to use the remaining oil in pusuit of the next source.
