Flimsy Sanity: The World's Oil

Flimsy Sanity

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. - Friedrich Nietzsche

The World's Oil


Neatorama has this proportional map of oil reserves. The discussion about it was interesting and if you go to the site you can see a larger version.

I think Greenspan, the darling of the free marketeers/Republicans, will have to face their hate now that he said the Iraq war was about oil. Something is fundamentally wrong when the areas that are richest in natural resources are poor. Seems the free market doesn't work for them.

    the freemarketeers excuse for that is corruption in whichever country it is.

    corruption does exist but it is allowed to exist as long as a few people and their buddies get rich in the west and in the host country.
