Matthew R. Simmons, who advises energy companies on mergers and acquisitions, suspected two years ago that the Saudis, despite promises of endless supplies of oil, might not in fact know how much oil remains to be recovered. What happens if the Saudis cannot satisfy the growing thirst for oil in the United States and China? In Twilight in the Desert: The Coming Saudi Oil Shock and the World Economy Simmons outlines his fears and predictions. A book signing will follow his talk.
