Falling Oil Prices Are Good For The European Economy

Falling oil prices are a good thing. They are good for the European economy. The only problem is that the low prices are not going to last, I think it is temporary. But the idea that Europe needs inflation is a complete and utter nonsense. Economies benefit from falling prices. Imagine if crude oil was free, if Europeans could have all the oil they wanted and did not cost anything. Wouldn't that be fantastic?
