Adam Isacson pegs the crucial question for Bolivia's decision to nationalize its gas resources: “will Morales’ nationalization just push Bolivia to the other end of the bell curve, to the point where disinvestment keeps the country from getting enough of its gas reserves to market?” Here is a very clear argument of what Bolivia stands to gain and what it could lose. Jim Shultz says that, in spite of plenty of big oil spinning, “the Devil Still Remains in the Details.” Eduardo Ávila says that Brazil and Argentina have come to terms with the decision, but Briegel Busch is slightly more reserved in his description of Brazilian and Spanish receptiveness (ES).
