Despite that bleak outlook, however, when the economist and editor of sat down for this exclusive Energy Report interview, he also had some good news. The Energy Report: A few months back, John, you said, "if you strangle liquidity you always contract an economy and deliberately or not, liquidity is being strangled, resulting in sharp declines in consumer credit, commercial and industrial loans.
