Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

Avoiding stolen oil and the purchasing power of the US

January 19, 2016 (16:26 mins)



Herman Wang and Brian Scheid

This week, Capitol Crude looks at tyranny, autocrats, violent coups, and a big question: Who really owns oil? Senior editors Brian Scheid and Herman Wang talk to Leif Wenar about his new book, "Blood Oil: Tyrants, Violence, and the Rules that Run the World."

Wenar, the chair of philosophy and law at King's College London, sat down to talk about his push for new laws barring the trade of stolen oil as well as how US policies play into the future of global oil markets.

Check back every Monday for the latest analysis of US oil policy news from leading Platts editors covering the Capitol. E-mail the editors at brian.scheid@platts.com and herman.wang@platts.com.
