Why the world will become smaller
...or the story about Globalisation 2.0, which I mentioned in the book 'Econoshock'...
Jeff Rubin left his bank around the same period as myself, and is now the former chief economist and chief strategist at CIBC World Markets. He was one of the first economists to accurately predict soaring oil prices back in 2000 and is now one of the world’s most sought-after energy experts.
His book appeared in May, and was published by Random House.
The key message from Rubin is:
"We've all got our eyes right now on the global financial meltdown, but I believe that oil scarcity will change the global economy even more profoundly and in the process change all of our lives – from where we work to where we live to what we eat," Rubin stated.
"I believe it's important to deliver this book's message in as many places and to as many people as possible."
I have always enjoyed Rubin's views, and his independent view deserves our respect. I will certainly buy the book and read it in the coming weeks.
