Leif Wenar on Blood Oil

Natural resources like oil and minerals are the largest source of unaccountable power in the world. Leif Wenar holds the Chair of Philosophy & Law at King’s College London. In his video interview he discusses petrocrats like Putin and the Saudis spend resource money on weapons and oppression; militants in Iraq and in the Congo spend resource money on radicalization and ammunition. Resource-fueled authoritarians and extremists present endless crises to the West – and the source of their resource power is ultimately ordinary consumers, doing their everyday shopping at the gas station and the mall.
