HOW LONG CAN WE LIVE WITH HIGH ENERGY COSTS?

Couple of years back when some of the energy sector experts warned that crude oil prices may touch US$ 100 a barrel, most of the economists did not agree with them. They had reasons to refute this because crude oil prices were hovering around US$ 50 a barrel at that time. They were also insisting that the price would settle around US$ 30-40 a barrel. When price touched almost US$ 70 per barrel, even the conservative economists were forced to change their opinion. The general consensus is that the recent surge in crude oil prices is not due to demand but entry of speculators into the oil trade.


  TELECOM

Surprising the policy makers, the mobile phone customer base in Pakistan has rapidly expanded to 17 million by September, against the anticipated projection of 15 million by December this year. In June 2003, the mobile phones totaled 5.02 million, which raised to 12 million by June 2004 and further increased to 17 million by September this year. This showed the fastest growth of telecom sector in Pakistan when compared to the performance of telecom sectors in the regional countries.
