Utter and complete bunk. Sure, some people can make money by doing what we're doing now. But they, or others, can make even more money by being the first to offer an alternative. Be the first company to come out with an electric car that sells for say 20k and has a good range (200 miles or more) and you'll make a mint. Why would market forces not produce such an outcome? How did we go from the horse and carrage to the car? From candles to lightbulbs? From sliderules to calculators? Who created and popularized the personal computer when big business and government assumed there was no need or demand for them? Guys in garages like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, that's who. Now they're billionaires via the forces of the free market.
