Oil crisis, a sudden rise in the price of oil that is often accompanied by decreased supply. Since oil provides the main source of energy for advanced industrial economies, an oil crisis can endanger economic and political stability throughout the global economy. In the post- World War II period there have been two major oil crises. This book explains the place of oil in the economic and political predicaments that now confront the West. Thompson explains the problems that the rising cost of oil posed in the years leading up to the 2008 crash, and the difficulties that a volatile oil market now poses to economic recovery under the conditions of high debt, low growth and quantitative easing.

Forty years ago this week the 1973-74 oil crisis began, as the producers’ cartel OPEC significantly raised prices and, shortly after, cut off supplies to several Western countries in retaliation for their support for Israel in its war with Egypt and Syria. The oil crisis of 1973 also had similarly large negative effects on other countries that relied heavily on imported oil, such as France, Sweden, Japan, Finland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Denmark. In Sweden's particular case, the recession proved devastating to the shipping, ship-building, and logging and mining industries. The oil crisis pushed West European car buyers away from larger, less economical cars. The most notable result of this transition was the rise in popularity of compact hatchbacks. The only notable small hatchbacks built in Western Europe before the oil crisis were the Peugeot 104, Renault 5 and Fiat 127.

The lower price for oil and gas due to the financial crisis was the major impact on the sector. Energy prices fell due to diminishing demand. The author argues that the 'Gordian knot' created by the economic and political dynamics of supply and demand oil in the present international economy poses a fundamental challenge to the assumption of economic progress embedded in Western democratic expectations.
