I really don't see why you'd bring the topic of tiny male g3nitals into this conversation.

i'm not trying to be any way about this . what I'm asking is that if there is a natural shortage in supply where does that manifest in the marketplace ? you know the little charts with S and D curves where you can show the mechanics of shortages etc ...

i've been hearing about peak oil since 2007 and it's been ' inevitable ' for far longer . some folks reframe it as a demand issue which is nonsense to me if demand happens to land within the envelope of available supply ; if the markets are in equilibrium the idea becomes inconsquential . show me the shortage is all i'm asking .

Until western capitalism changes and a CEO doesn't have the fiduciary duty to squeeze every penny of profit for the board members and stock holders that 1-2% mentioned in the article isn't going to change.

Not to mention that 1-2% of revenues could end up being a huge percentage of net income (or even more than 100% in some cases).

Of course, I realize these margins are thin.

If there was a pizza joint in your neighborhood (which already has ample choices for pizza in this scenario) that said they could only keep the doors open if they were allowed to poison not just their customers but the whole neighborhood, would you tell them to shove it or would you concede that their criteria for staying afloat justified it?
