The World Oil Market and Venezuela: a reciprocal interaction
IE Energy Club 16 de mayo 2012
Event co-organized with IE Venezuela Club. The theme of the conference will be the acting forces behind the oil market looked at in a long-run perspective. Those forces, due to the very nature of the oil resource, have also a political component that needs to be pointed out and clarified. Out of the discussion there will come out theoretical elements that should be of great help at the moment of conjecturing how the world oil market might evolve in the coming years.
