Oil and the End of Globalization

Once the economy recovers, oil prices will skyrocket -- and globalization, as we know it, may end. What will our world look like then, and how will we continue to prosper? Today, almost everything we use is made possible, in some way, by abundantly available oil. But oil reserves are disappearing, never to return. Consequently, international trade and long distance driving, among other things, will become luxuries. But from this new reality, Rubin offers a vital account of how we can all benefit if we act now. In this new world, industries, such as steel and agriculture, will be revitalized; carbon tariffs will increase productivity; mass transit will be rethought; and our communities and the human spirit will be strengthened. Looking to the end of oil, and globalization, Rubin is both passionate and practical in outlining opportunities -- opportunities that are endless and endlessly hopeful.

Financial Times
