The Political Economy of Resource Regulation

An International and Comparative History, 1850—2015

Industrialist John Paul Getty famously quipped, "The meek shall inherit the earth, but not its mineral rights." Throughout history, natural resources have been sources of wealth and power and catalysts for war and peace. The case studies gathered in this innovative volume examine how the intersection of ideas, interest groups, international institutions, and political systems gave birth to distinctive regulatory regimes at various times and places in the modern world. Spanning seven continents and focusing on both advanced and developing economies, it offers unique insights into why some resourcerich countries have flourished while others have been mired in poverty and corruption.
