The latest falls in crude oil prices and high market volatility are raising questions regarding the direct impact on the oil industry and the ramifications for the real economy and financial markets. Although less-than-expected economic growth and abundant oil supplies may explain why oil prices are falling, economists are puzzled by speedy price adjustment, weak demand response to oil price changes and the hesitant reaction of financial markets.
In this Special Issue, we invite frontline researchers and authors to submit original research on the impact of oil prices on local and international economies. More broadly, we are interested in papers on oil policy and oil price forecasting and also welcome articles on oil price–stock market interaction. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Oil price forecasting
- Oil price volatility modelling
- Crude oil demand forecasts
- Fiscal implications of falling oil prices for producing countries
- Oil markets and economic growth
- Oil prices and the USD exchange rate
- Impact of oil prices on stock markets.
