Rubin is the best thing to happen as far as garnering attention to the crucial days ahead with high oil prices. In the past, the media and establishment just use their tired old lines of dismissal towards anyone who would share this kind of info - "fearmonger", "anti-business", "activist", "wacko" etc.... The same old lines are all it takes to keep the public from truly understanding the link between oil and the economy. I chuckled at todays paper - $1 gas is back. On the TV stations it's getting great airtime.
It's amazing after all we've been through in the past 2 years, the media continues to play this game. The public still doesn't understand that our economy IS oil. Everyone complains when the economy tanks, and now they're all complaining because it's slowly crawling up.

Rubin can't be dismissed with the tired old monikers. He IS the establishment. He IS the exact sort of person the media loves to interview and tell us all that there is plenty of cheap oil left.

It should be interesting to see how his new book is received in the media/public.
