Abstract or Brief Description


“Last year two very gifted researchers, Jonathan Nitzan and Shimshon Bichler, argued that the Iraq War would not make oil plentiful and cheap at all, but scarce and expensive with the leading oil companies profiting greatly from the new environment of heightened instability and soaring oil prices.... Nitzan and Bichler had been making predictions of this kind for quite some time, from before the invasion in fact, but to no avail. I’m happy to say that we finally have confirmation of their claims, thanks to BBC Newsnight Greg Palast.”
