The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
Flooding the market with cheap oil would be great for the price we pay, put not for the profitability of the oil company. If you have a business that makes wicker baskets but the prices are so low because there's too many on the market, you cut back on how many you make until the price goes back up. You don't think that oil companies work on that same principle (to an extent)?
It's not cheap until there's a surplus, but the oil companies aren't going to let that happen. It's not in their financial interest.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
