Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Problem is that it feels like people really want to believe that the finite-planet problem is the cause. It's not at all clear that it is. Oil prices quite possibly acted as a trigger, but virtually anything could have given how unstable the system configuration was - and the problems are far bigger than necessary given how stupid the political configuration was.
