The United States and Iran: Anticipating Possible Effects of Conflict on the Global Economy
Webcast of the event can be viewed here.
NEW DATE: Report Release and Briefing: "Sanctions, Military Strikes and Other Potential Actions Against Iran: Anticipating Impacts on the Global Economy"
The Federation of American Scientists will release the results of a new study, which assesses the global economic impact on a variety of conflict scenarios, sanctions and other alternative actions against Iran, at a luncheon briefing on Friday, November 16, 2012 at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, DC.
The escalating confrontation between the United States and Iran over the latter’s nuclear program has triggered much debate about what actions should be taken to ensure that Iran does not develop a nuclear weapon. Yet this debate has focused primarily on the immediate impacts on Iran’s nuclear program and thereby left many questions about broader effects underexplored. For example, how might certain actions against Iran affect the global economy?
Mr. Charles Blair, Senior Fellow on State and Non-State Threats and Study Director, will present the main findings of the new report, "Sanctions, Military Strikes and Other Potential Actions Against Iran: Anticipating Impacts on the Global Economy," along with several prominent national security and economic experts who participated in the day long elicitation exercise that served as the centerpiece of the study.
Lunch will be served at the event.
