In this case, one person. Steven Kopits writes:
4. The US is immune to an oil shock on paper as we are ostensibly energy independent in oil. We’ve seen this play out before. US oil consumption declined from June 2011 to December 2012 — 18 months — without the US falling into recession, something which is historically unprecedented in modern times. By contrast, Europe fell into a steep recession during this period — Q4 2011 through Q1 2013.
While it’s true that there’s not a terms of trade shock due to higher oil prices when oil prices rise, and there’s not a “transfer effect” when US is in trade balance, higher oil prices do feed into the general price level; in old parlance, that’s called a “cost push” shock (see Figure 3 in this post), and would reduce output in the absence of countervailing macro policies.
Kopits ascribes the fact that Europe went into recession due to their being a net oil importer. Could be. I would tend to ascribe it to the Greek debt crisis, and associated austerity measures pursued in the euro area. Pretty much all the economists I know of would ascribe more causality to that event, rather than Euro area being a net oil importer.
