Resource nationalism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Resource nationalism is the tendency of people and governments to assert control over natural resources located on their territory. The approach of peak oil has led many governments to take ownership or control of fossil fuel reservoirs for strategic and economic reasons, although resource nationalism applies to other resources, such as metals, or in less developed nations, mining investment. Resource nationalism conflicts with the interests of multinational corporations.
