"It should not be surprising to find that there is a close tie between GDP growth and oil supply growth ... Too much debt seems to be one of the limits, besides oil limits, we are reaching now ... ... [W]ith the small increases we are seeing in oil supply currently (about 0.4% per year), we are already at a point where world real GDP can be expected to be much lower than most economists would prefer (2.2% or 2.5% per year) ... If we want world real GDP to grow by 4.0% per year ... world oil supply needs to rise by 2.8% per year ... If world oil supply declines by 4.0% per year, the model would suggest that world real GDP can be expected to decline by 1.0% per year ... [W]e are entering a very challenging period."
