Robert Weiner

Robert Weiner, professor of international business, was featured in GW Today on April 4.  The Q&A discusses the rising price of oil, the nation’s dependence on foreign oil, and a new course that Weiner will be teaching this fall that will examine oil’s impact on business and society.  The course, “Oil: Industry, Economy, Society” will investigate gyrating oil prices, the effects of conflict and corruption on oil and the aftermath of last year’s BP oil spill.  ”The course is multidisciplinary, part of the school’s vision of business in broader society.  We will be looking into a rich variety of topics, ranging from corruption and conflict, which many believe oil fosters, to understating what’s behind high oil prices and whether we’re “running out” of oil.” Weiner said.
