Editor’s note: Sort of like Alaska’s oil wealth is shared with U.S. citizens?
Citizens of oil producing nations must see more benefit from their country’s national resources, billionaire investor George Soros has told the BBC.
Revolts in Libya were partly the result of “revulsion against a corruption” fed by the misuse of oil money, he added.
More “transparency and accountability” was needed from other producers such as Russia and Saudi Arabia he said.
Mr Soros also predicted the Iranian regime would be overthrown in the “bloodiest of the revolutions”.
