520    "Volatility in commodity prices has been accompanied by 
       perpetual renegotiation of contracts between private 
       investors in natural resource production and the 
       governments of states with mineral and energy wealth. When
       prices skyrocket, governments want a larger share of 
       revenues, sometimes to the point of nationalization or 
       expropriation; when prices fall, larger state 
       participation becomes a burden and the private sector is 
       called back in. Recent and newsworthy changes in the price
       of oil (which fell from an all-time high of $147 in mid-
       2008 to $40 by year's end) are notable for their speed and
       the steepness of their rise and fall, but the up-and-down 
       pattern itself is not unusual. If the unpredictability of 
       commodity prices is so predictable, why do contracts not 
       allow for this with mechanisms that would provide a more 
       stable commercial framework? 
520    In The Natural Resources Trap, top scholars address this 
       question in terms of both theory and practice. Theoretical
       contributions range across a number of fields, from 
       contract theory to public finance, and treat topics that 
       include taxation, royalties, and expropriation cycles. 
       Case studies examine experiences in the U.K., Bolivia, 
       Argentina, Venezuela, and other parts of the world."--pub.
