Power is in the eye of the beholder, to paraphrase a famous saying. After all, power is a difficult thing to quantify or measure and depends on how we react to it. In our globalised world, power is even harder to analyse as it exists at lots of different levels and is enmeshed not just in people and institutions but also international laws and conventions.
Which is where our two fighters enter the ring:
On one side we have the Bolivian Government led by the smartly-dressed, pursed-lipped Carlos Villegas, an academic with THE book on the gas industry who had to replace the former Hydrocarbons Minister in the 7th Round and who largely has the support of the people to reclaim Bolivia's natural resources.
On the other we have the multi-headed beast of the energy multinationals including Repsol, BP, British Gas, Total and the biggest bruiser Brazilian Petrobras, powerful companies with big money and international political backing.
Who do you think will win?
