Published Nov. 8, 2007 5:29 a.m.
Vaitheeswaran, author of Zoom: The Global Race to Fuel the Car of the Future, here asserts that within “the thorny geopolitical, environmental, and economic complications involved with cars and oil, America’s federal energy policies do matter.” He calls for a “market-minded” approach that offers a level playing field for entrepreneurs and innovators instead of the conventional and archaic.
