    The only four-year period that has exceeded the past four was 1970 to 1973 (world GDP growth 5.4% pa), and that was followed promptly by a global recession sparked by the 1972 oil shock. The IMF is now forecasting another two years of the same, an extraordinarily optimistic outlook.

    Seems there a bit of an error in their comments re the oil crisis. According to wikipedia this didn't occur until October 1973.

    1973 oil crisis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This would explain why the recession started in 1974. Maybe it was a typo??

    I remember that it doubled the cost of filling my car from a $1 to $2 and it just kep increasing from there.

    As far as the share market is concerned I tend to agree that we haven't hit the rediculous times yet.

    Cheers

    Maybe...but in too many cases "gurus" got it wrong too often...
    You may find below article by Jay Kaeppel quite interesting.

    $2!!!!! Wow!!! Even I can't recall a tank being that cheap - but then again I was but a mere child at the time :D
    I do remember my dad, however, driving all over Sydney to save a cent or two per litre :D
