As oil demand falls, a changing global energy economy will destabilize petrostates, says Jason Bordoff in the Wall Street Journal.

Op-Ed

Writing in The Hill, Richard Nephew explains the history and reality of the so-called “ransom payment” made to Iran by the United States in January 2016 of $400 million, which is now the subject of such controversy.

Op-Ed

Ambassador Carlos Pascual

Writing on CNBC.com, CGEP Fellow Carlos Pascual writes that for the next U.S. president, no foreign policy choice will be more important than deciding whether and how to end a stalemate of conflict in the Middle East. The challenges will be daunting. But turning a blind eye to the region's deteriorating realities will ensure that the dangers and threats only grow, he argues.

Op-Ed

Jason Bordoff

One of the most exciting areas of advanced manufacturing is 3-D printing. While it has been around for many years to produce crude prototypes, 3-D printing is now being used to make everything from jet engines and complex machine parts to bridges and buildings, artificial limbs and biomedical tissue. One company is even producing 3-D printing machines for use by NASA in space to avoid costly space flights to supply the International Space Station. It is still too early to determine the full potential of 3-D printing, but the technology is advancing quickly. Yet the environmental impacts of 3-D printing have been little studied, and may cut the other way too, writes Jason Bordoff in the Wall Street Journal.

Op-Ed

Richard Nephew

The Iran nuclear deal was destined to be controversial in its negotiation, conclusion and implementation. Nowhere is the deal more complex than in the area of sanctions relief. But, write Richard Nephew and Liz Rosenberg, blaming sanctions for the failure of a windfall for Iran to materialize — as critics and supporters alike are saying — misplaces attribution and undermines prospects for the deal’s success.

Op-Ed

Antoine Halff

Gone are the days when oil gurus agreed “$100 is the new $20”, or intoned that “the age of easy oil is over.” But it is not just prices that entered a prolonged decline, so too did OPEC’s image as market-shaping institution. Since then OPEC has seemed in terminal decline. But, argues Antoine Halff in the Financial Times, it is too early to announce OPEC’s death.
