Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
when you run a balance of accounts deficit it is kind of like your trading partner, e.g. China, is giving you stuff for free.

It is for free, if you finance your consumption by issuing debt, and then defaults on the debt.

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