A coming world that's 'a whole lot smaller'

Mr. Rubin has taken his long-standing forecast that inevitably declining production and rising demand will send oil prices inexorably higher - over $200 (U.S.) a barrel by 2012 or earlier, just for a start - and imagines how the world will have to change to adjust to such a reality.

"This book is not about how to make money. It's [about] how you change your life," he said. "What car you drive next, where you live, what are the industries where you're likely to get a job, what are the industries where you're likely to lose a job. Where are you likely to go on your next vacation, where are you likely never to go on a vacation again. What kind of changes are you going to make to your diet. Those kind of things."
