Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, I'm saying the crisis was created by retarded economic policies during the 80's. Both the general economic policies and the bungled credit deregulation.

The low unemployment was artificial - we payed for that with high unemployment later during the 90's crisis.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
