Sanctions are now a favored tool for the United States to use against adversaries such as Russia, Iran, North Korea, and many other countries and individuals. Presently the U.S. has sanctions against more than 30 countries.

Joining Host Jim Falk to talk about the effectiveness, (or not), of sanctions and what this means to the country sanctioning as well as the country being sanctioned are:

A native of Moscow, Dr. Aron came to the U.S. as a refugee in 1978. An acclaimed Russian scholar, his latest book, Riding the Tiger: Vladimir Putin’s Russia and the Uses of War, is an incisive study of Russian history and what has brought Putin” to the point of no return.”

Dr. Jentleson is the author of Sanctions: What Everyone Needs to Know, a concise, authoritative overview of a little-understood yet extremely important phenomenon in world politics: the use of economic sanctions by one country to punish another.

 

Sanctions are easy to apply but hard to remove and frequently the result is opposite to their intent, of what is frequently described as a “shadow” weapon.
