I didn't say the problem was caused by consumer anxiety. In fact I specifically said that the rising petroleum prices were a major problem right now, and if there is a solution there, I'm not aware of it.

What I was saying was that there are safeguards in place now that would make a disaster of the magnitude of the crash of '29 unlikely. And that yes, to some extent, consumer confidence influences the economy as well as being influenced by the economy.

However, I can't see any way at all petroleum costs at their current level won't cause major economic problems.

I'm no expert however. My recollections of college economics are relatively vague.
