Yesterday I listened to Ezra Klein’s (NYT) podcast that I highly recommend. It addressed the history, experience, and wisdom of the imposition of economic sanctions by one country on another. The podcast was obviously prompted by Russia’s illegal and immoral invasion of Ukraine and the consequent severe package of sanctions imposed by the U.S. and its NATO allies against Russia, Here is a link to the conversation, which confirmed, I should admit, my deep scepticism of such regimes.
