Will the Oil Patch Bust Trigger US / Global Recession?

Since early 2010, energy producers have raised $550 billion of new bonds & loans as the Federal Reserve held borrowing costs near zero. This seemingly inexhaustible credit line is now drying up, with severely negative consequences for oil producers with debt that’s coming due. Could the oil patch bust triggered by oil plummeting to $50/barrel kick the U.S. into recession?

Could an Energy Bust Trigger QE4?

The bright spot for US over past few years has been the surge in energy production, called the “American Energy Revolution”. I believe oil headed higher because the Fed was printing money. Why is it that oil started falling when the mass of analysts came to believe the Fed would finally tighten? So oil now needs QE4 for higher prices again.
