Ten of the 12 recessions in the United States since World War II were preceded by an increase in the price of crude petroleum. Are events of 2022 about to bring the count up to 11 out of 13? This talk will review the theory and evidence about how energy supply disruptions can affect the overall level of economic activity with a focus on understanding the role of recent developments in energy markets in the current economic slowdown.
