Friday Movie Night - The Curse of Oil

hot buttered popcorn It's Friday Night! Party Time!   Time to relax, put your feet up on the couch, lay back, and watch some detailed videos on economic policy!


The BBC's Curse of Oil documentary follows the oil industry, the global demand for oil, the consequences and the depths that are taken to get at it. It's a little too biased towards the oil industry, but the reality of the modern world being an oil economy means the BP Gulf oil disaster was not only probable, it was guaranteed.

The documentary Anatomy of a Disaster dissects the BP texas oil refinery incident, which killed 15, in 2005.
