If oil-crunched Indonesia goes nuclear As the only Asian member and current president of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) oil cartel, Indonesia should be capitalising on the high prices for crude oil and laughing its way to the bank. South-east Asia's largest country, and by far its most populous, has the world's 16th largest proven oil reserves. However, output has declined in the past three years from an average of just over 1.2 million barrels per day to about 1.1 million now, below its Opec quota of 1.27 million. Official figures published in Jakarta last month show Indonesia became a net importer of crude oil for the first time in February and March.

When the Jakarta stock market plummeted by 31 points on Sept. 18, 2000, many domestic analysts directly blamed the bomb explosion at the Jakarta Stock Exchange (JSX) building as the main cause. We, on the other hand, beg to differ. In our opinion, most of the decline in the JSX can be directly attributed to weak sentiments toward regional stocks. In turn, part of the weak sentiments occurred through events happening beyond Asia's boundary (i.e. in Europe and the U.S.), while some of the negative sentiments are coming from inside the region itself.
