“The coming oil crisis could be larger than the housing collapse and the mortgage debacle…” Dr. Kent F. Moors
Dr. Kent F. Moors, professor at Duquesne University, and founding editor of Oil and Energy Investor is an internationally recognized expert in global risk management; oil and natural gas policy; and global finance and investing.
Dr. Moors’ new book The Vega Factor: Oil Volatility and the Next Global Crisis is available from Wiley as of May 31 (John Wiley & Sons, ISBN 978-0-470-60208-9).
“The coming oil crisis,” says Dr. Kent Moors, “Could be larger than the housing collapse and the mortgage debacle. We are rapidly moving toward a deterioration in the oil sector that will affect the world in ways not previously imagined.”
The Vega Factor: Oil Volatility and the Next Global Crisis takes an in-depth look at the reasons why oil prices will never again be reflected by fundamentals of supply and demand. Traders – not market forces – are coming to control oil prices. And governments around the world must respond to prevent an oil crisis that will cause more damage than the housing and mortgage crisis.
The world saw how speculators ran up the price of oil during the financial crisis in 2008. Today the situation is ripe for an even bigger run-up. And current government approaches will only worsen the dangerous situation forming inside the oil markets.
Inside The Vega Factor: Oil Volatility and the Next Global Crisis readers will find…
- The global oil industry’s biggest players – they’re some of the most powerful companies, people and government officials, and you’ve probably never heard of them.
- A “call to action” for the world’s largest oil producers and consumers – they have to reverse traditional priorities and policies to prevent a global oil crisis before it’s too late.
- A guide to today’s oil industry – it’s fundamentally different from the pre-crisis market – and how it became a powder keg waiting to blow.
Oil prices affect everyone. And The Vega Factor shows readers the new world of international oil – its increasing consolidation and decreasing competition – and how consumers and investors can navigate volatile oil markets and new government policies.
