Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)

OPEC’s media presence may have faded over the past few years, but this group of countries has the power to impact the political-economy of the world.  With the power to set the supply of oil to the world, this cartel can affect prices with the world demand for oil at a constant high they have made themselves a force to be reckoned with.  However, with a new world-wide emphasis on clean energy, how will OPEC remain relevant in a future with alternatives to fossil fuels. This committee will focus on maintaining power on the world stage, while dealing with world and domestic crises as the come.
