The petroleum sector is possibly the largest and most dominanteconomic sector in the globalized economy. However, for reasonsexplored in this book, although none of the existing economicdevelopment models fit this sector in the past and apply even lesstoday, no satisfactory alternative has presented itself. Thisbook highlights the important reasons why current models fail topredict energy pricing with reasonable accuracy, and ventures intoenvironmental and other problems with oil and gas production andassociated economic decisions mounting across both developed aswell as developing economies.
