"Think about it, Almost every country depends on Oil to run the economy and a handful of countries manage the oil production and the supply of Oil. Supply is controlled means the price is controlled. Recently due to pandemic, the demand fell sharply and Oil reached $20 per Barrel. Eventually, the US president urged Russia and Saudi Arabia to cut the production so that price can be elevated and lot of potential bankruptcy can be avoided. This seems very interesting to understand.
That's the idea behind this session. In this session we try and dissect the Industry and Overall Working of Oil as an Industry. We look at how the Oil Industry operates and why it is so important in terms of global macroeconomics."
