Just as the world economy was recovering
THIS week we look at the 2011 oil shock and its effect on the world economy. The Middle East and North Africa produce a third of the world's oil. So far the oil price has jumped a bit, but investors seem reassured by Saudi Arabia's promise of more production. That glosses over two risks: first a serious supply disruption, or the fear of it, could send the oil price soaring. And, second, that would fuel inflation, which in turn would prompt a monetary clampdown. A lot, we argue on our cover leader, depends on the skill of central bankers.
