I focus on the intersection of the global capitalist economy and U.S. foreign policy. I have developed the "transnational investment bloc" framework to analyze U.S. policy in the Persian Gulf. Within this framework, U.S. policy can best be understood as protecting the capitalist interests of a U.S.-Saudi transnational investment bloc that derives steady profit from the military and investment ties between the U.S. and the region.
