We've all been living in a fool's paradise of cheap gasoline, cheap oil for the last several decades, and that's coming to an end." - Richard Heinberg

"Many trends of the last century or more, made possible by cheap and abundant energy sources, are going to be reversed. These trends include population growth, centralization of political and economic power, vastly increased quantity of global trade, and mass tourism... Many proponents of current economic policies may be well intended, but often we end up with unsound rationalizations to justify short-term, often individual interests. What has been lost is a sense of the common good, future generations’ needs, and non-human welfare." - Jason Bradford, PhD

Although the world economy continues to grow, the economic health of the United States is at risk. There are several potential problems. In this short essay we examine how the price of oil impacts our economy, and conclude a recession is highly probable. If America does experience a recession, or even a period of declining GDP, the resulting economic malaise will spread to all of its trading partners.

That’s one of the “benefits” of globalization.
