It was a pleasure to sip coffee and talk the future of energy with Simon Wright last week. Simon is Energy and Commodities correspondent for The Economist, and author of the paper’s recent Special Report on the impact of unconventional sources of natural gas. Our conversation ranged from shale gas in the US (looking good) and Eastern Europe (a political fiasco), to the future of Big Oil (not bright, in his view). It was fascinating to hear his take on the dynamics shaping the global energy and commodities markets – not only the cutting edge businesses and technologies, but also the political contexts in which they operate.
