The Falling Oil Prices Crisis From A Legal Perspective ‘the Actual Cause’

Authors : Majd Aures Benlala .

Abstract

In view of the current falling oil prices crisis that has hit the world, in general, and Algeria, in particular, this paper tries to look for the actual causes hidden beneath a questioned legal system, which is supposed to regulate and protect the economic and financial environment in connection with the global markets in general. In addition, this study sheds light on the OTC markets for the oil ( commodity) derivatives contracts, and how they influence and affect oil prices. Eventually, it reveals the actual legal cause to the above montioned crisis.
