This book analyzes the energy security of the United States – its ability to obtain reliable, affordable, and sufficient supplies of energy while meeting the goals of achieving environmental sustainability and protecting national security. The economic and national security of the United States is largely dependent upon fossil fuels, especially oil. Without significant changes to current practices and patterns of energy production and use, the domestic and global impacts – security, economic, and environmental – are expected to become worse over the coming decades. Growing US and global energy demands need to be met and the anticipated impacts of climate change must be avoided – all at an affordable price, while avoiding conflict with other nations that have similar goals. Bernell and Simon examine the current and prospective landscape of American energy policy, from tax incentives and mandates at the federal and state level to promote wind and solar power, to support for fracking in the oil and natural gas industries, to foreign policies designed to ensure that markets and cooperative agreements — not armies, navies and rival governments — control the supply and price of energy resources. They look at the variety of energy related challenges facing the United States and argue that public policies designed to enhance energy security have at the same time produced greater insecurity in terms of fostering rising (and potentially unmet) energy needs, national security threats, economic vulnerability, and environmental dangers.

If you want to understand the multitude of complex issues different players in the debates—heroes and villains—then read on. What you will find is the rich and fascinating unfolding of a movement that in its modern form is now over 50 years old."

Meldungen über eine Weltwirtschaftskrise beherrschen unsere Nachrichten. Die EU droht auseinanderzubrechen, fast vergessene Ressentiments zwischen Kulturen brechen wieder auf, wir kämpfen gegen Umweltzerstörung und die Überalterung unserer Gesellschaft. Wird die westliche Kultur untergehen wie andere Hochkulturen vor ihr? Karin Kneissl, eine der renommiertesten Expertinnen für internationale Beziehungen, hat sich in jahrelanger Recherche mit dem Untergang von Großreichen beschäftigt. Was können wir aus dem Fall des römischen Weltreichs, der Welt der arabischen Kalifen oder des britischen Empires lernen? Kneissl analysiert die Vergangenheit und zeigt mögliche Tendenzen auf: Die Idee einer solidarischen Weltgemeinschaft etwa könnte sich als Illusion entpuppen. Nicht die aktuellen kosmopolitischen Machtzentren werden wichtig sein, sondern die kleinen Einheiten: die Peripherie, die Dörfer. Was wird unsere kulturelle Identität in Zukunft prägen? Wie werden wir nach einem massiven Wohlstandsverlust leben? Wie werden unsere Wirtschafts- und Energieversorgungssysteme organisiert sein, damit die westliche Welt eine Chance hat gegen die wirtschaftlich aufstrebenden BRICS-Staaten (Brasilien, Russland, Indien, China und Südafrika)? Und welche Rolle wird Religion in Zukunft spielen? Karin Kneissl gibt Antworten auf diese drängenden Fragen unserer Zeit.

"All for One" examines inequality and the many ways it matters. In our overview article, the World Bank's Branko Milanovic explains how income inequality is measured and tells us that it's increased in most countries. The good news, he says, is that global inequality--between countries--could be on the downturn. IMF economists Andrew Berg and Jonathan Ostry find that a more equal society has a greater likelihood of sustaining longer-term growth. Other IMF research on inequality finds that financial sector development not only 'enlarges the pie' by supporting economic growth but divides it more evenly; that higher income inequality in developed countries is associated with higher indebtedness--at home and abroad; and that while fiscal consolidation is necessary in the medium term, slamming on the brakes too quickly can harm jobs and cut wages, exacerbating inequality. Also in this issue, we profile Elinor Ostrom, the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize for economics. In a tour of the globe, we look at how the African diaspora can help their home countries from afar, try to draw some early lessons from the euro area's debt crisis, investigate how the United States and its neighbor Canada handled public debt--with different results, and find out about the rise of emerging markets as systemically important trading centers. Back to Basics explains the difference between micro- and macroeconomics, and Data Spotlight tells us about a new worldwide survey of foreign direct investment.

Why should the gas lines of the 1970s become a permanent part of American life in the 1980s? The international energy system is now so precariously balanced that a critical supply interruption can occur at any time. Gasoline rationing could be the immediate response in a new crisis. But is the United States ready? This volume analyzes these urgent issues. It is the result of a special symposium of the nation's leading experts convened by the International Energy Seminar at Harvard's Center for International Affairs to explore the various options for reshaping gasoline demand. There is no easy answer, but the worst course is to do nothing. If we are to solve the dependence dilemma, we must do it ourselves. Originally published by the Harvard University Center for International Affairs in 1980.

The 2013 class of Nuclear Scholars, selected from a very competitive applicant pool, contained some of the best and brightest young professionals in the nuclear field. Drawn from graduate programs, the national labs, the civil service, and the U.S. military, these Nuclear Scholars participated in six monthly workshops that focused on a wide range of nuclear topics. These topics included extended deterrence and assurance, stockpile stewardship, nuclear materials security, Iranian and North Korean proliferation, international nonproliferation norms and treaties, missile defense, and nuclear targeting. The program culminated in a final meeting at which the Nuclear Scholars presented their own research to a panel of senior experts. The papers resulting from these presentations are contained in this year’s volume.

En “Todos para uno: Por qué la desigualdad nos hace perder el equilibrio” se aborda el tema de la desigualdad y las múltiples razones por las cuales es importante. En nuestro artículo central, Branko Milanovic del Banco Mundial explica cómo se mide la desigualdad de ingresos y explica que en la mayoría de los países se ha agudizado esta desigualdad. La buena noticia, señala, es que a escala mundial, es decir, la desigualdad entre los países, posiblemente esté disminuyendo. Los economistas del FMI Andrew Berg y Jonathan Ostry concluyen que una sociedad más igualitaria tiene una mayor probabilidad de sustentar el crecimiento a más largo plazo. En otra investigación del FMI sobre la desigualdad se llega a la conclusión de que el desarrollo del sector financiero no solo “agranda el pastel” al estimular el crecimiento económico sino que también lo divide de manera más pareja; que el aumento de la desigualdad de ingresos en los países desarrollados va asociado a un mayor endeudamiento interno y externo, y que si bien la consolidación fiscal es necesaria en el mediano plazo, si se aprietan los frenos de golpe el empleo y los salarios pueden verse perjudicados, con lo cual se agrava la desigualdad. También en este número presentamos una semblanza de Elinor Ostrom, la primera mujer en recibir el Premio Nobel de Economía. En un recorrido por el mundo indagamos cómo la diáspora africana puede ayudar a la distancia a sus países de origen, tratamos de extraer las primeras lecciones de la crisis de deuda de la zona euro, investigamos cómo Estados Unidos y su vecino Canadá manejan la deuda pública, con diferentes resultados, y analizamos el ascenso de los mercados emergentes como centros comerciales de importancia sistémica. En “Vuelta a lo esencial” se explica la diferencia entre la micro y la macroeconomía, y en un “Vistazo a las cifras” se presenta una nueva encuesta mundial sobre la inversión extranjera directa.

This pioneering and in-depth study into the regulation of shale gas extraction examines how changes in the constitutional set-ups of EU Member States over the last 25 years have substantially altered the legal leverage of environmental protection and energy security as state objectives. As well as offering the first formal assessment of the legality of fracking bans and moratoria, Ruven Fleming further proposes a new methodology for the development of legally sound regulation of new energy technologies in the context of the energy transition.
