      Energy Security and Portfolio Diversification: The Exporter’s Perspective

      Philipp Galkin, Carlo Andrea Bollino

      Despite the increasing attention paid to energy security and the continuously broadening scope of the field, the perspective of energy importing countries (i.e., supply security) has overshadowed that of exporters, who seek to ensure demand security. As official statements and…

      Estimating the Household Consumption Function in Saudi Arabia: An Error Correction Approach

      Estimating the Household Consumption Function in Saudi Arabia: An Error Correction Approach

      Taylor & Francis Online

      We estimate a micro-founded life-cycle consumption model for Saudi Arabia over the period 1970–2017 using error correction model procedures. Dynamic adjustments are significant, and both income and wealth are found to have significant effects, with a long-run marginal propensity to…

      Balancing Energy Security Priorities: A Portfolio Optimization Approach to Oil Imports

      Philipp Galkin, Carlo Andrea Bollino, Simona Bigerna

      The idea of energy security emerged after the energy crises of the 1970s. It has evolved from the initial paradigm of assuring sufficient energy supplies to include a price affordability perspective and, eventually, many other energy-related issues, such as infrastructure,…

      How Total Factor Productivity Drives Long-Run Energy Consumption in Saudi Arabia

      How Total Factor Productivity Drives Long-Run Energy Consumption in Saudi Arabia

      Fakhri Hasanov, Brantley Liddle, Carlo Andrea Bollino, Jeyhun Mikayilov

      In this study, we investigate how total factor productivity (TFP), alongside income, price, and population, shapes energy consumption in the long-run in Saudi Arabia, the world’s number one oil exporter. To do so, we first estimate a production function and…

      Potential Effects of Trade Liberalization on China’s Imports of Plastics From the GCC

      Philipp Galkin, Carlo Andrea Bollino, Rami Shabaneh

      Petrochemical products, particularly plastics, contribute to a significant share of expanding and increasingly diverse trade flows between the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and China. The petrochemical sector could benefit from a preferential bilateral trade regime between China and the…
