Event Description

The coincidences of oil, financial, and war crises can be traced back historically many decades. As governments struggle to update energy policies to respond to today's energy crisis, it is important to recognize the phases of past cycles and to consider how climate change-related policies and technology breakthroughs might influence the cycle going forward. Amy Myers Jaffe will present her latest jointly authored work on oil market speculation and geopolitical risk and discuss how the US IRA and similar efforts in China, India and the EU could alter the trajectory for oil price cycles in the future.
