Daniel Raimi, author of Columbia University Press book, The Fracking Debate: The Risks, Benefits, and Uncertainties of the Shale Revolution, writes in The Hill about the risks and benefits of shale development.

This book chapter, in the Handbook of the International Political Economy of Energy and Natural Resourcesoffers a comprehensive assessment of the rapidly changing international political economy (IPE) of natural gas.

A recent study by MIT attempts to address the issue of the technological improvements in the U.S. tight oil sector. Given the consequential impacts of the US shale revolution, both at home and abroad, it is important to understand what the MIT study actually said and its implications for US production. In this new commentary, CGEP scholar Marianne Kah attempts to highlight and clarify some of the critical findings of the MIT study and address more broadly the many uncertainties regarding forecasting future US tight oil production.
