The price of oil is the big sleeper here. With the huge drop in
revenue oil rich countries are going to have less to spend on
expanding production when they are already starting to face much
greater difficulty in finding new oil fields and rapid depletion of
the old fields.
Just as we start to lift out of the recession/depression we will hit
the production decline side of peak oil. An analysis with somewhat
overwhelming detail is here <http://www.theoildrum.com/node/4820>.
Don't expect business as usual to return.
