As an energy and environmental specialist who has historically thought of 'decoupling' as the act of decoupling electric utility revenues from increased power production (as a means to encourage utilities to promote conservation), I was very curious to read what Otaviano meant by 'decoupling' in the context of global economic growth. The Vice President for PREM's article was excellent, highly informative, and illuminating, especially in its comparison of the current financial crisis with the debt crisis of the mid-1980s, and in its explanation of how current challenges are different and how the prospect for developing countries are much brigher. Thank you!
