Late lesson again

Finally people seem to realize the truth: we should cut the fuel subsidy. Yes, that means the price will increase. (Ironically, SBY and JK seem to be too afraid to push this through -- but that's another story).

One thing remains bothering. That is the whole useless debate about production and quantities. It's the price that matters! We have learned it the hard way with rice case: you all hated production data, but you refused to recognize price as the reliable indicator. Now you're doing it again with fuel. And god knows what's next.

i think you are right, aco...unfortunately you never enlighten people or even decision makers to realize what a real problem and how to solve it.
