If the price of heroin goes up I don’t think it makes addicts consume less. It just makes them desperate and more likely to commit crimes. The economics of addiction is different from the economics of normal supply and demand.
We are addicted to oil and living a high-energy lifestyle. Don’t be surprised if conventional economics doesn’t find a solution.
To solve drug addiction you just send troops to the countries the stuff comes from. Seriously, you need to do things like love the addicts like heck, give them meaning to their lives and purpose, give them all the loving care you can.
It’s no different for energy addicts. Policy-makers need to get that.
