A talk by Sharat G. Lin
While wars have historically been fought with soldiers and guns, the sole superpower has realized its monopoly ability to wage financial war through sanctions and embargoes against its perceived enemies around the world, such as Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Russia, China, Syria, Gaza, and many others. How and why does the United States alone exercise this extraterritorial power to such devastating effect?
Dr. Sharat G. Lin has written and lectured on global political economy, public health, labor migration, social movements, and the arts of protest. He is with the San José Peace and Justice Center and the Initiative for Equality.
