Triple Crunch

Some people who now think the recession is not a recession but a permanent change due to oil supplies having peaked. As Yes magazine puts it “Whether it was divine providence or just good luck, we should give thanks that financial collapse hit us before the worst of global warming and peak oil. As challenging as the economic meltdown may be, it lays bare the failure of a financial system that has brought us to the brink of an even more devastating social and environmental collapse”.
