There have been debates and its often questioning the existence of the corporation is conflict-affected regions.

at the beginning of shale oil revolution in mid-2014, oil prices were around 100-110 USD and the shale oil producing companies was taking advantage as a result of the heavy demand for this type of oil, and in return was the conventional oil exporting countries, particularly OPEC producing same levels of oil which resulted in excess of supply over demand in the oil market. Then the oil prices began to drop gradually until it reached to low levels to below 50 USD a barrel, which form a major threat to shale oil production companies because of the high production cost along with low prices for oil, which led to a decline of shale oil production as well as the exit of some companies from the oil market as a result of losses. On the other hand, the conventional oil producing countries were not affected too much since the cost of conventional oil production is less than 10 USD a barrel which some countries such as Saudi Arabia was able to live with. It can be seen that the oil producing companies which use hydraulic fracturing technique are significantly affected by the fluctuation of oil prices and therefore the profit margin of these companies is very low. And that's why the conventional oil drilling gives higher profit margins to the companies that invest in it than the hydraulic
The global marketplace for biosimilars is estimated to be approximately $20 billion in 2020. Since both sterile injectables and biosimilars are large but growing categories, theoretically this deal should be a success. In this report, we also have done valuation to evaluate this deal better. Pfizer financed the transaction through a combination of existing cash and new debt, with approximately two-thirds of the value financed from cash and one-third from debt. This way, Pfizer put to use the huge cash it was sitting upon.

And if people stop buying into it, then the price could drop thousands of dollars, making many people lose money when others are in a frantic to sell. To add on, Bitcoin investing is a bad idea because it actually poses a very big health risk to people.

Marion King Hubert. When oil first discovered? In 1847.There many ways that how a peak oil could affect the world especially the countries that relies in the production oil and that’s the only source of money, or the country that relies on oil for electricity, transportation, and etc. Peak could be a good thing or a bag thing.in that ay that peak oil could be a good thing is the pollution will be decreased, but the bad thing will be is that there will be a scarcity of oil which will reduce the usage of oil like there will be less transportation.

In the case of Ghana, her oil reserves were discovered by Kosmos Energy in 2007. While some may see it as a blessing, others may see it as a curse. How can these minerals and oil reserves be a curse when they generate huge foreign exchange? These resources become a curse when they do more harm than good. This curse may come in the form of slow growth, a decline in her tradable sector due to the appreciation of her currency among others.
One of the main reason is the socialism system that was started by Hugo Chavez, former president of Venezuela. The programmes and food subsidies only benefited when the oil prices were on it’s record peak. When the prices of one barrel of oil dropped to $26 per barrel, along did it’s total revenue. The subsides implemented were not able to function anymore . This leads to the next problem of the country’s economic failure, oil dependency.
“A lie cannot live,” this quote once said by a great leader, Martin Luther King, proves that corrupt countries or organizations do not live but decay. However, this is not the case in Sudan as the corruption rate has increased in the last few years making Sudan a victim of corruption. Every victim has a story and today I will be telling you about Sudan’s story. Despite being almost 60 years since Sudan’s independence, it has yet not achieved its full potential. The reason behind this is that Sudan is unfortunately corrupted.
