  1. World Oil Prices EC1-115-I-M

    This case is designed to introduce students to the basic tools of supply and demand and to observe and predict how they operate in a real market that is constantly grabbing headlines: the global petroleum market. The analysis of this interactive multimedia case is based around those events that have affected the price of oil from 1970 to 2013.

    Students will be presented with a series of historical events that affected the price of oil on the world market. They study each of these and then predict the effects on price by shifting the curves on the traditional supply and demand model.

    The World Oil Prices interactive exercise has been used successfully across a range of masters programs, from Masters in Management through to MBA and executive programs. The material would be suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate economics courses, once the initial supply and demand theory has been grasped.
