Cheap things

경제 뉴스 쪼가리는 상당히 재미있고 관심 있게 보지만, 실생활에는 무슨 생각을 하는지 한심하게 무덤덤하다. 며칠 전 기름 넣으러 갔다가 받은 영수증을 오늘 보고 깜짝 놀랐다.

So here are two questions: Are speculators mainly, or even largely, responsible for high oil prices? And if they aren’t, why have so many commentators insisted, year after year, that there’s an oil bubble?

Again, I wouldn’t be shocked if oil prices dip in the near future — although I also take seriously Goldman’s recent warning that the price could go to $200. But let’s drop all the talk about an oil bubble.

But it’s not clear how much can be done. Cheap food, like cheap oil, may be a thing of the past.
