In Austria we have a saying. When the cat is on vacation, the mice have a party. Thats what happens in much of the more developed world namely North America and Europe. We had no real problems for a long time so we create some out of thin air. Russia and most Asian countries don’t have that luxury. They must do what works for real – not in some version of lala land. Russia and China push the envelope on nuclear technology now. Especially Cghina had been stealing technology for a long time. There will be a time when we need to steal some from them.
The prospects of this emerging renaissance of nuclear power seem to have already attracted the attention of smart money investors growing tired of technology stocks such as Tesla or Facebook.
