Description: Obama’s Policies to Give Massive Boost to Renewable Sector Summary Barack Obama’s victory in the Presidential elections will mark the departure of the policies of the last eight years followed under Bush’s administration. Though most of Obama’s policies were formulated in an era of $100 plus oil prices, it will be interesting to see which policies will be implemented with oil prices trading at half the levels. The financial crisis and job creation has replaced energy prices as the most important issue for the American people, and in keeping with this mood, Barack Obama is most likely to implement policies that facilitate investment and job creation in America, rather than tax companies and subsidize the American energy bill.
