Oil Prices are Relative
If she is right -- which I suspect she is -- a question arises as to whether in current conditions the OPEC countries can control production sufficiently successfully to keep oil prices falling significantly below that target.

Given the likelihood that there is a great deal of truth in the 'Peak Oil' hypothesis, one would have thought that both the OPEC countries and Russia had strong incentives to try.
Whether they have the capability is of course another matter.
