Oil, the Hills, & Downtown Lights

The invisible hand of capitalism arises to meet the challenge of high priced oil, as it is arising to satisfy the demand for green technology, and this is a very good thing for all of us and is the great secret driving most of the world to our shores still, for capitalism—supply and demand—is a great way to increase the freedom and comfort of human beings.

There was a time not so long ago when moving to the foothills surrounding Sacramento was a way to escape the bad air and bad traffic of the valley and live surrounded by sparkling blue skies, pristine water, and mellow drives.
