I think having a lot of generic briefs is always very useful as neg. Especially with the broad topic this year. Any ideas for generic brief topics for this year's TP res?

Point being, it's traded on a global market, so the vast majority of policies aimed at oil prices or "energy security" have little effect.

At least, that would be my point - I think there's some evidence in COG to that effect.

Exactly. It can be used on oil embargo-type case.

Aha, that makes sense.

(And I think I wrote that brief.)
