Nigeria: The Political Economy of Oil

£17.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Nigeria is the most populated nation on the African continent and contains a vast wealth of natural resources. it is the largest petroleum producer in Africa and a key exporter of oil to both Western Europe and the USA. These factors alone give the country great political and economic clout. And yet the political economy story of Nigeria remains one of gross indebtedness, inefficiency and mismanagement. Sarah Ahmad Khan brings all these issues together in a masterful and far-ranging account of the Nigerian oil industry. In turn, she considers key issues such as the fraught relationship between the government and foreign oil companies, the financial constraints on domestic investment and the tragic lessons of an economy dependent on oil. In an international context she explains the pivotal role played by Nigeria between the Gulf oil producers and the emerging markets of Europe and America. A special chapter considers the potential of Nigeria's natural gas, which at present is wasted on a scale greater than anywhere else across the globe. At every stage she highlights the influence which the oil industry has exercised on the wider economy and vice versa. This book is a novel and fascinating look at the problems and obstacles which a developing country faces in trying to exploit its natural resources. It will interest all those in the international oil industry and everyone with an interest in development. This 1994 is in a fair condition. The hard back cover has minor creasing to the corners and edge of the spine from storage, there is a smudge mark to the inside front page and although the pages appear unread, there are some very small marks and very minor chips to the page block which are only visible when the book is closed. The dust cover has some creasing and minor yellowing to the corners and edges, a few scratches and on the back some small black marks, which could be carefully removed with a finger nail.
