Leif Wenar on Blood Oil

Embed Cite Participate Recommend

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.
