Let me start things off with a disclaimer - I am not an economist. I don't even pretend to
be an economist; I'm a nuclear engineer by training (I hold Ph.D. in
Nuclear Engineering). That notwithstanding, economics (and specifically,
the economics of energy) are a side interest of mine. So it was with
mixed interest and trepidation when I read a recent piece by libertarian
economist Veronique de Rugy from the upcoming July issue of Reason, entitled "No to Nukes."
