Russia The Next Energy Superpower?


Russia The Next Energy Superpower? Today's guest believes that America's old Cold War enemy, Russia, could be rising as a superpower again, but not in the way you may think. Robert Kravchuk of UNC Charlotte believes that Russia is in a position to become an energy superpower. That means the vast Eurasian country could be poised to hold influence over the price of energy products, policies of customers, and even hold influence over world markets for other products. The global energy picture is ever changing with the rise of nuclear energy, and political paradigm shifts in the Middle East. Dr. Kravchuk will help us understand the major players and where Russia stands in all this.
