The article poses a simple question: do we want Government to decide how to allocate this valuable, scarce resource or leave it to the market?
Easy one. The scarcer oil becomes, the more important it is to leave its allocation to the market. That\’s what markets are good at.
Quite. Some things are simply too important to be left to governments.
