William asks…

Comparative advantage in the oil industry?

Im writing a paper on how comparative advantage explains international trade with the oil industry as an example.

Does anybody know where oil comes from? Who has the advantage? Any statistics, Sites?

Im having a lot of trouble finding information, your help is greatly appreciated…

John answers:

You don’t know where oil comes from? Don’t you pay attention to the news at all? Don’t you know how to do a web search?

A search on “oil producers” gives, as its first reslt:
http://middleeast.about.com/od/oilenergy/a/me090607d.htm

And the department of energy website is a good source:
http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/international/oilother.html

Do you understand the difference between absolute advantage and comparative advantage?

How can comparative advantage be a factor for the production of crude oil?

Now for the refining of oil, it can be a factor, but you didn’t even mention that. But note how the list of major oil refining countries is different than the list of oil producing countries:
http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/ene_oil_ref_abi-energy-oil-refining-ability
That’s where you have to look for your analysis on comparative advantage.

Or you might ask why the U.S. Imports 130.3 billion cu m of natural gas (a product of the oil industry) (2007 est.) but at the same time exports 23.28 billion cu m.

Maria asks…

I am at a complete loss at finding a house to rent that is three bedrooms.?

Me and my roommates at college are trying to find really ANY three bedroom house for rent but the issue is we have only found a couple. We live in Beckley WV and most online sites we find have none listed, local trade paper is almost bare, and the few we do find don’t want college students or want us to bring our parents hundreds of miles to sign a lease because we are not 21.

The dorms we live in cost us 4000 a year with food and with our jobs and when the food is available we can’t even use it and the dorms are falling apart. We literally have around 3 weeks to find a place so any help on a website or anything with a nice list would be GREATLY appreciated.

John answers:

You AREN’T minors, but landlords are probably not going to rent to students without their parents co-signing – there is a lot of damage potential to students renting a house – parties, etc and most likely some of those people HAVE rented to students in the past and had their houses trashed

can’t you find a 2 BR apt and share one of the BR’s ? You’re in college – you can’t expect the luxury of an entire house and separate bedrooms for everyone

you are not going to find anything cheaper than $400 per month per person for RENT, Utilities, internet access, TV and food

utilities in a house in WV in the winter could run you $300-400+ a month easy

Paul I: As I responded to your email. peer-reviewed doesn’t mean reviewed by other 9/11 Conspiracy Theorists! It means reviewed by objective engineers and scientists that effectively sign off on your work. Provide a source that is a mainstream, peer-reviewed journal and I will happily concede the point.

John answers:

Conspiracy theorists don’t deal well with facts. Their heads might implode. LOL.
