Libya’s Franchise Fiasco
By GEOFF D. PORTER
As long as militias have power, Libya’s economic normalization
will be postponed. If groups outside the government can shape the
security environment, outside investors, particularly oil
companies, will be wary of returning to the country. Without
foreign companies, Libyan oil production will not return to
preconflict levels and, worse, it risks slipping backward. Revenue
could decrease at the very time the government needs it most.
