Just a quick note that labor productivity is generally thought to account for about 70% of total factor productivity. Some say that number may be on the decline.

The Major Wildcard That Could Send Oil To $120 | OilPrice.com
That last spike occurred during a recession because of the massive amount of liquidity being injected into the markets. Some 7 to 9 trillion dollars in lending facilities were created by the Fed in 2008. They also created long-term open market operations to facilitate securities lending.

Crude oil has also spiked om the past before a recession as per 2000 since the US dollar will fall in anticipation of the Fed lowering interest rates to try to head off a recession.

Nice work, your post turned out to be like the horror movie where saying a name in the mirror or something summons it.

Granted, despite usual droning message we got lucky with no red text this time.
