US-OPEC relations souring
In this episode of ‘Modus Operandi’ we examine the growing geopolitical strength of OPEC, especially the leading nation in the organization, Saudi Arabia. Will Riyadh’s move towards greater global independence harm the US empire established after World War II? What does it mean that Saudi Arabia is growing closer to both Russia and China? Our host Manila Chan sits down with Bruce Riedel, Sr. Fellow at the Brookings Institute, and Ali Ahmed, a Saudi academic and journalist, to discuss.
