Are we also in front of Energy Crisis?

There is growing evidence that Energy Crisis is just around a corner. To understand issue you need to get familiar with Peak Oil theory.

The term Peak Oil refers to the maximum rate of the production of oil in any area under consideration, recognising that it is a finite natural resource, subject to depletion."

Financial crisis (George Soros)

Here you have video version.

You can find more on George Soros official website. I would also highly recommend to watch Conversation with Ricardo Caballero, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Economic Department Chair.

Well, you know, it's very interesting. Actually, these market fundamentalists are making the same mistake as Marx did. You see, socialism would have worked very well if the rulers had the interests of the people really at heart. But they were pursuing their self-interests. Now, in the housing market, the people who originated the houses earned the fee. And the people who then owned the mortgages their interests were not actually looked after by the agents that were selling them the mortgages. So you have a, what is called an agent principle problem in socialism. And you have the same agent principle problem in this free market fundamentalism.
