Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Crude Truth: Do you want to know why you're paying so much at the pump these days? Raymond J. Learsy, a longtime commodities trader, explains the real facts behind today's outrageous gasoline prices by lifting the veil from the Mideast oil cartel. He shows how OPEC manipulates the oil markets with results that are destabilizing to the world's economy and threatening to America's national security. With refreshing candor and an insider's perspective, Learsy explains how OPEC: - promotes a bogus perception of oil scarcity in order to hike prices and gain political power. - is compromised by connections to Islamist terrorists, who fuel anti-American hatred with dollars from our own pockets. - keeps Third World populations in crushing poverty, despite rich oil deposits found in their countries. - became the de facto master of Iraq's newly liberated oil fields. Along with a sweeping survey of OPEC's methods of economic domination, Over a Barrel offers a well-informed strategy for busting the Mideast oil cartel and charting our nation's course towards energy independence.

Book News Annotation:

Learsy (Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars) "aims to awaken us all to the dangers posed by the great oil conspiracy." He charges the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries with manufacturing scarcity and colluding to fix prices at unnaturally high prices. He also charges non-OPEC countries such as Mexico and Russia, Western oil companies, and Western governments with actively supporting the conspiracy. Further, he accuses prominent OPEC countries such as Saudi Arabia and Kuwait with using their ill-gotten wealth to actively undermine the goals of the United States and other Western countries.
