Interview on the Geopolitics of Oil

Geopolitics of Oil ; Source: , by Dib 2008

I would like to point readers interested in the geopolitics of oil to a very interesting interview the’s geopolitical editor Daniel J. Graeber gave to yesterday evening. Among the topics discussed, I would especially like to draw your attention to the following:

  • How do the tensions in the Middle East impact oil prices?
  • How to think about tapping Alaska’s vast energy resources?
  • What is the potential of shale gas?

If you are also interested in finding out why he calls the possibility of an Iranian naval blockade of the Strait of Hormuz a red herring, follow this link.
