Catch-up from last term ... Pics of the BigOil-8 Simulation for Dr Kerem Öge's module  Political Economy of Natural Resources in December. 
Each student represented a country in a special meeting of major oil importers/exporters, coming with a realistic international response to an imagined global energy crisis. It was a major success!
