Paid for by whom? I would agree with you if you had said "farming will continue as long as there are people to BUY the food produced."
With so little oil there are no longer suburbs, what "work" will the people be walking to?
I just can not be so complaisant about people moving in with Mom to walk to their jobs in the city. What jobs?
I guess that's why I'm a doomer. I'm not seeing what jobs there will be when there is so little oil there are no longer suburbs and everyone has moved to the city.
I guess this is something I'm just never going to figure out, how our economy is supposed to continue when it is dependent on cheap and plentiful oil.

I do expect quite a bit of disruption and the rate of that upheaval to accelerate over time. I think that a lot of jobs will be created in the new industry of "Dealing with peak oil". If we can't afford oil at its current price we will expend time and labor doing whatever it is that needs to be done by other means. Not all the Mother-in-laws live in the city. Some are still living on the family farm
