As the BP well in the Gulf of Mexico continues to spew thousands
of barrels of oil each day, media attention has been focused on the
toll on nearby economies and ecosystems and on the U.S. political
response. On this edition of the Global Prosperity Wonkcast, we
look beyond the Gulf of Mexico to explore what implications

offshore oil boom getting underway in Africa.
My guests are Vijaya Ramachandran and Todd Moss, both senior fellows here at the Center for Global Development.
