It uncovers the truth behind oil pricingincluding its speculation and manipulation, the politics of oil and its impact on our security, oils influence on our domestic and foreign policies, OPECs success, and the menacing impact of oil on the environment.

OIL AND FINANCE presents a real-time account of a nation in crisis. Filled with contemplations and reactions, it is also a call to arms and a battle plan. It communicates how we can reduce our dependence on foreign oil, develop alternative energy sources, stabilize our economy, shore up our national securityand prosper as a people.
