Just when the economy starts to turn around, oil prices will skyrocket and imports will become much more expensive. It's the end of the global economy - and the revitalization of local economies. So says economist Jeff Rubin, author of Why Your World is About to Get a Whole Lot Smaller: Oil and the End of Globalization. In Part 2, we're joined by Sam Matthews, executive vice president of Central Vermont Economic Development Corporation, who gives a local perspective.
