The Future of the Economic Weapon webpage banner

Financial, debt, and other economic crises have compounded over the last 15 years, and governments and international actors have responded, sometimes effectively, sometimes in a panic, often with painful consequences for citizens or other countries. This panel discussion brought together three influential economists and historians who have studied international economics as a weapon and a system of international organization: Mona Ali, who works on the contemporary dollar system; Jamie Martin, who has studied the origins of modern global economic governance; and Nicholas Mulder, an expert on the history of sanctions and economic coercion.

Panelist Details:

Mona Ali, SUNY New Paltz, author of a forthcoming book on the weaponization of the global dollar system

Jamie Martin, Harvard, author of The Meddlers: Sovereignty, Empire, and the Birth of Global Economic Governance 

Nicholas Mulder, Cornell, author of The Economic Weapon: The Rise of Sanctions as a Tool of Modern War
