2005 - YL Alumni Videoconference Meeting - Rome and Washington, DC

On Thursday, December 1, the Council held a videoconference meeting between a group of alumni at the Brookings Institution, in Washington, DC, and one at Enel, in Rome.
The meeting featured a preview by Leonardo Maugeri (YLC Naples 1995) of his book “The Age of Oil: History, Future, and Mythology of the World’s Most Controversial Resource,” which will be published by Praeger next year.  Mr. Maugeri is Group Senior Vice President for Corporate Strategies of Eni (the sixth-largest publicly listed oil company in the world).
Matt McManus (YLC Atlanta 1999), Chief of the Energy Producing Countries Division in the Bureau of Economic and Business Affairs at the State Department, responded with some of his perspectives on the subject, after which the floor was open to a general discussion.
