Project Resources: (Note: My project details the rise and fall of the start up Better Place, a company with a mission to end the world’s dependence on motor oil by developing a network of electric cars and battery switching stations. After describing Better Place, I will try to address whether companies in the free-market economy are the best way to solve multi-faceted issues such as freeing the world from its dependence on oil. The alternate hypothesis, of course, is government intervention to solve the world’s most pressing issues.)
