ABSTRACT
The article discusses how record-high oil prices are affecting the balance of global power away from the U.S. and Europe and over towards the Middle East. Saudi Arabia's oil revenues have surged from 60 billion in 2000 to an estimated 152 billion in 2007. The author explains how these wealthy nations are using their surplus of money to fund corrupt political institutions and build new empires. How this is threatening security and energy within the U.S. is also discussed.
