Editorial Reviews

Review

For most readers, the volume will most certainly shed a revealing light on the energy issue. As one of only a few voices willing and qualified to eloquently challenge the status quo, Raymond Learsy has once again proven his insight to be invaluable.
- Peter Dabbene at ForeWord Clarion

Kirkus Reviews - Learsy "has an insider's knowledge of the intricacies within the global financial web, which he explains with clarity and biting wit; yet he's not afraid to take bold, iconoclastic positions."
"Punchy prose and canny muckraking make for an informative, entertaining challenge to economic orthodoxy."


Kirkus Reviews says Oil and Finance is a "take-no-prisoners savaging of the global economy's oily underbelly."

More About the Author

Raymond J. Learsy, a graduate of Wharton School of Business, launched into the fast-paced, risk-filled world of commodities trading beginning five decades ago.

In 1963, he started his own firm and over the course of 20 years expanded from the United States into Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe and Asia, trading in bulk raw materials and commodities. During the Reagan administration he served as a Presidential appointee to the National Council of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Learsy's analysis of the international oil trade, OPEC, and its impact on the American and world economies has been featured in the National Review Online, the New York Times, the Pipeline and Gas Journal, CNBC and NPR, and as a regular contributor to The Huffington Post. His two previous books on oil received favorable reviews, Over A Barrel (2005) and Oil and Finance: The Epic Corruption 2006-2010 (2011).
