People on the boat do think it’s always overcrowded.
After global warming, sub-prime crisis, mortgage meltdown, impending recession and food price inflation, we have moved on. Spelling out doom, unlike hope mongering, can’t be a single rhetoric done to death. Therefore, next week, you will listen to a BBC World Special on the possibility of crude touching $200/barrel and what it might mean to your wallet.
However, it remains to be seen if the last person who gets on, feels that the boat is indeed full.
