What are the consequences of embargoes and economic sanctions? Are they useful policy tools in order to deal with hostile regimes, and what are their long-term effects on the world economy?

In the wake of the lifting of the Cuban embargo and in the face of a potential deal with Iran, these questions are as important as ever. Join us as we discuss the consequences (both intended and otherwise) of economic sanctions and international embargoes at the Hudson Grille Midtown with FEE’s Carl Oberg!
