It is difficult to overstate how much global attention the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been receiving. From its involvement in Yemen’s civil war to its ever-growing rivalry with Iran, Saudi Arabia and its assertive foreign policy have captured international observers. On top of this, the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the controversial rise of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman have been watched closely across the world by people of all stripes.
Our guest in this episode is Dr. Jim Krane, the Wallace S. Wilson Fellow for Energy Studies at the Baker Institute. Here, Dr. Krane explains how these current events in Saudi Arabia affect not only U.S. foreign policy considerations, but also energy geopolitics on a global scale.
