Crude Oil and the Successful Intermediary the Export and Import of Petroleum Based Products by Intermediaries

Author: Davide Giovanni Papa
Publisher: Lund Humphries Publishers
ISBN: 147246818X
Release Date: 2015-10-28
Genre:

With all of the news surrounding climate change and the need to reduce emissions, renewable energy is gaining a stronghold and there is a sharp focus on the reporting of energy usage and carbon emissions. As such, it seems that the petroleum industry is heading for a steep decline. The reality is, however, that renewable energy is not cheap nor is it suitable for heavy industry use; two factors which drive a viable economy. As more people take up alternative and renewable types of energy sources, as obtained from the sun or wind, it the price of localised coal and fuel-powered electricity generation will increase, in direct correlation with the decreased use of so-called 'dirty energy'. Yet, Davide Papa contends that there is no other practical form of energy that could match the energy output of crude oil pound per pound. The decline in the trading of crude oil and associated fuels is not upon us in the near or distant future, if ever and the marketplace is ripe for informed intermediaries to source and sell petroleum based products for a long time yet. Davide sets out a basic, uniform standard of practice and explains, in a clear and straightforward language, the rules and laws that must be adhered to when conducting business in the complex export/import arena, thus guiding intermediaries, brokers, agents, buyers and sellers who are attempting to deal in commodities, including petroleum based products, to success. The insight Davide provides has cross-industry relevance and additionally will appeal to a host of professional entities such as intermediaries, lawyers, scientists, engineers, accountants, corporate and home based traders.

European Intermediary Liability in Copyright

Author: Christina Angelopoulos
Publisher: Aspen Publishers
ISBN: 9041168354
Release Date: 2016-11-18
Genre: Law

Provides a clarification on the substantive rules of European intermediary accessory liability in copyright and formulates harmonised European norms to govern this complicated topic. In step with the rapid progress to the centre of modern social, political, and economic life, the internet has proven a convenient vehicle for the commission of unprecedented levels of copyright infringement. Given the formidable practical obstacles to the successful pursuit of actual perpetrators, it has become common for intermediaries providers of internet-related infrastructure and services to face liability as accessories. Despite advances in policy at the European level, the law in this area remains far from consistently applicable. This is the first book to take a law-based approach towards exploring a possible introduction of a substantive European intermediary liability.

The Secret World of Oil

Author: Ken Silverstein
Publisher: Verso Books
ISBN: 9781781681930
Release Date: 2014-05-13
Genre: Political Science

The oil industry provides the lifeblood of modern civilization, and bestselling books have been written about the industry and even individual companies in it, like ExxonMobil. But the modern oil industry is an amazingly shady meeting ground of fixers, gangsters, dictators, competing governments, and multinational corporations, and until now, no book has set out to tell the story of this largely hidden world. The global fleet of some 11,000 tankers—that's tripled during the past decade—moves approximately 2 billion metric tons of oil annually. And every stage of the route, from discovery to consumption, is tainted by corruption and violence, even if little of that is visible to the public. Based on trips to New York, Washington, Houston, London, Paris, Geneva, Phnom Penh, Dakar, Lagos, Baku, and Moscow, among other far-flung locals, The Secret World of Oil includes up-close portraits of a shadowy Baku-based trader; a high-flying London fixer; and an oil dictator's playboy son who has to choose one of his eleven luxury vehicles when he heads out to party in Los Angeles. Supported by funding from the prestigious Open Society, this is both an entertaining global travelogue and a major work of investigative reporting.

What Makes Exports Boom

Author: Mark J. Roberts
Publisher: World Bank Publications
ISBN: 0821336673
Release Date: 1997-01-01
Genre: Business & Economics

"This report sheds new light on what makes exports grow. The effects of macroeconomic conditions and policy variables on manufacturing exports have been notoriously unpredictable in the research literature. The research summarized here suggests that that unpredictability can be traced largely to neglected microeconomic characteristics of manufacturing sectors. In particular, the export response to a given stimulus is shaped by the cross-firm dispersion in unit production costs, the extent of product differentiation, and, critically, the prevalence of previous exporting experience. This research is derived from a recently completed World Bank project examining the microeconomic foundations of industrial export booms in Colombia, Mexico, and Morocco. For each country, plants were followed through time, and their decisions to begin exporting, cease exporting, or adjust their export volumes were detailed. By focusing on microeconomic characteristics, the authors highlight some features of export supply response not previously quantified. First, export booms in Colombia, Morocco, and to a lesser extent Mexico would have been more modest if large numbers of firms had not decided to break into foreign markets. Second, new exporters face significant start-up costs as they develop marketing channels, adapt products and packaging to foreign tastes, and learn bureaucratic procedures. They become exporters only when the expected profits from foreign sales are large enough to cover these costs, and are unlikely to respond to export incentives viewed as transitory." -- Website.
