Challenging the conventional wisdom surrounding high oil prices, author James R. Norman makes a compelling argument and sheds an entirely new light on free-market industry fundamentals.

By deciphering past, present, and future geopolitical events, he makes the case that oil pricing and availability have a long history of being employed as economic weapons by the United States.

Far from conspiracy theory, the book notes how the U.S. has previously used the major oil players, the Saudis, and market intervention to move markets— and shows how this is happening again. This compact and unorthodox analysis will appeal to a broad audience— from energy consumers puzzled by intractably high oil prices to producers wondering how long windfall prices can defy gravity.

Softcover, 244 pages
