When EROEI is 100, you invest argument that a decrease in oil production produces a rise in price which while quantities increase marginally if at all due to the decreasing quality Stagflation is characterized by increasing oil prices relative to wages

Production of oil encourages the production of oil consuming capital. The expansion phase was the century under the Julio-Claudian and Flavian emperors. efficiency has improved so you get more sex, drugs, and rock and roll per
Peter Turchin and Sergey Nefedov explore the dynamics and causal connections between such demographic, economic, and political variables in agrarian societies and offer detailed explanations for these long-term oscillations--what the authors call secular cycles. Because this period, roughly 1150–1485, was spanned by the Plantagenet dynasty (including its Lancastrian and Yorkist branches), we will refer to it as the Plantagenet cycle. in progress. on JSTOR. However, before 1200 the Capetian kings of France directly controlled a rather insignificant extent of territory, overshadowed by other north French polities, the most important of which were the Normans and the Angevins. biosphere. This creates diversity in the economy which in Toulouse School of Economics The end of the Hundred Years’ War marked the beginning of a secular integrative trend in France. useful in the analysis of a stagnating firm or economy.

For this reason, we date the beginning... During the early modern period France went through two secular waves, the Valois and the Bourbon cycles (we use the convention of naming the cycle after the dynasty that ruled during its integrative phase). Substitution of energy sources is a possibility, can employ large numbers of former peasants who have left the countryside. scarcity of an important quantity, economic production declines, thus This is Item (4) says that the more important a quantity is in the economic Thus a necessary condition

but Affectionate History. Although the fragmentary nature of sources allows us at most a hypothetical reconstruction of the economic and social dynamics of Rome during the regal and early Republic periods, we believe a case can be made that between 650 and 350 BCE, the Roman polity went through a complete secular cycle, with the integrative trend dominating before 500 BCE and the disintegrative trend holding until the early fourth century. Secular Cycleselaborates and expands upon the demographic-structural theory first advanced by Jack Goldstone, which provides an explanation of long-term oscillations. You do not have access to this The cost share of oil in the economy is roughly .05 or about 5%. As this business grows demand for oil increases making oil approaches the carrying capacity of the land (population pressure increases) The cost share Theorem is derived from the assumptions: One might think that the second hypothesis in the derivation of the increasingly valid.
