Emma Ashford, senior fellow at the Stimson Center, joins Danny and Derek for a discussion on petrostates. They define what exactly “petrostate” means, the different ways these countries may use their resources to affect geopolitics, the intersection of oil wealth and personalized autocratic systems of government, the future of these states in the era of climate collapse, and more.

Be sure to grab a copy of Emma’s book Oil, the State, and War: The Foreign Policies of Petrostates.
