Energy Bottlenecks in South America

Energy Bottlenecks in South America

South America has enjoyed robust economic growth in recent years, in part driven by rising global prices for commodities such as oil. Yet energy shortfalls loom on the horizon, both in electricity generation and oil and gas production. Meanwhile, greater state intervention in the energy industry threatens oil and gas production levels in Bolivia and Venezuela, where decisions often stem from political rather than economic considerations. The region’s governments also show little interest in cooperating on energy policy.

Economic Challenges for Climate Change Policy

A consensus continues to grow among world leaders that climate change poses a threat to the global economy. The Bush administration has been reluctant to impose mandatory greenhouse-gas curbs on U.S. industries. But the front-running 2008 presidential candidates and the Democratic majority in Congress say they are committed to enacting mandates to curb greenhouse gases. For the next U.S. president and Congress, finding an approach that manages to cut greenhouse gases without doing serious harm to the U.S. economy remains a top concern.
