The Larry Summers piece on the Jobs Crisis (http://blogs.reuters.com/lawrencesummers/2011/06/13/the-jobs-crisis/) is scary. He is pretty much right AND we ARE in a heap of trouble. The ideas of reducing regulatory burdens and maintaining/upgrading infrastructure will help. However, he fails to "think big". After I read the article, I asked myself what could really make a difference in this situation and eliminating dependence on foreign oil came to mind. Hey, that's easier than going to Mars, right? I carried this further and asked "How could we lower the price of oil to $20 @ barrel?" So I googled and found this — http://www.ted.com/talks/amory_lovins_on_winning_the_oil_endgame.html Here are some really good ideas — they were offered in 2005!! Thinking "big", what are your ideas?
Oh, and write your Congressman.
