Abstract:

Pratap Chatterjee in his report to Corpwatch1 indicates the politics of the current fuel crisis is leading to unlikely bedfellows. The governments of Turkey and Saudi Arabia have shut down gasoline exports to Iraq and as a result Baghdad has begun to negotiate with its former arch-rival, Iran. Government officials in Baghdad and Washington claim that the gasoline shortage is ‘insurgent’ or ‘terrorist’ activity but the trucking companies and those living the crisis says it is more often due to corruption and common criminal activity.Development (2006) 49, 116–118. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100282
