CABE Webinar: The Economics of Sanctions and Conflicts: Lessons for Ukraine and NATO

The use of economic sanctions have become increasingly important as alternatives to military conflict, especially since the end of the Cold War.  The talk will provide a survey of the theories and empirics of the economics of sanctions and provide lessons and predictions on the conflict in Ukraine.  The talk will also present economic concepts of conflict to highlight an economist’s perspective on Russia, and military alliances such as NATO.
