Overview

An engaging look at the global oil industry and how to navigate the price volatility and new policies associated with it

Oil is a constantly changing industry, and with the recent BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, more changes are expected. From extra equipment, higher-cost insurance, and expensive technology to mandatory third-party inspections, costly delays, and shifting investments, analysts say the price tag of regulation will be stiff and not confined to the Gulf.

The oil industry affects everyone, and the machinations of a few industry heads, the "Barbarians of Oil," can drastically change the lives of investors and consumers. In Barbarians of Oil author Sandy Franks offers the tips needed to avoid future market dips and dives as well as safeguard your investments and profit in the future.

  • Details the petro-land grab in Africa, the Bush-Halliburton Era, the Gulf Wars, and the political dangers to the United States in Iran, Iraq, and other oil-rich nations
  • Looks at the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the impending long-term effects on investments and policy
  • Explores the evolution of the modern oil industry including major corporations such as ExxonMobile, ConcoPhillips, Cheveron, and BP

Barbarians of Oil is a timely must read for hard-working Americans concerned with their prosperity, as well as for those fascinated with the inner workings of the oil industry.
