Op-Ed

Richard Nephew

For one, oil money ain't what it used to be. And second, Tehran has bigger problems to deal with at home.

Op-Ed

Richard Nephew

It is now taken as a given by many that, upon completion of a comprehensive nuclear deal, Iran will plow its hard-won sanctions relief into regional adventurism. Having dealt with the nuclear issue, Tehran will secure its real ambition of regional domination. In an op-ed for Reuters, Richard Nephew argues that this narrative is powerful, compelling, and frightening and that it is also not true.

Op-Ed

Richard Nephew

In an op-ed for Roll Call, Center Program Director Richard Nephew and Elizabeth Rosenberg of the Center for a New American Security argue that it is far preferable to conclude a deal with Iran that addresses enrichment concerns via direct diplomacy and that a move to sanctions measures could compromise any chance to resolve the nuclear issue peacefully.

Op-Ed

Jason Bordoff

Yesterday’s move by OPEC to leave its production limits unchanged at 30 million barrels per day reflected a failure by the cartel to act collectively to reduce oil production and boost prices. Oil prices will likely continue to drop on fears of oversupply. But while OPEC may go into hibernation, reports of its death are greatly exaggerated. 

Op-Ed

Jason Bordoff
Jason Bordoff, Founding Director of the Center on Global Energy Policy, argues that lifting the current restrictions on US oil exports is smart for both economic and geopolitical reasons in a Wall Street Journal feature debating the issue.
