The Real Reasons for the War in Iraq,
This review is from: Petrodollar Warfare: Oil, Iraq and the Future of the Dollar (Paperback)
This book challenges us to comprehend the macroeconomic motivations of our U.S policy makers over the last 60 years to do two things. 1. Make the U.S. dollar the standard world currency for oil. 2. Ensure that the U.S. can control oil resources in order to sustain this dominance through superpower military superiority. William R. Clark makes a compeling case against our current positions in foreign and economic policies based on the fact that the world's oil supplies have reached peak production and are now in decline. His scenarios are not all bleak and depressing. His solutions for the next generations of energy supply give us some hope that the human species may be sustainable through alternative energy sources and a change in the way we American's squander carbon based fuels.
