Great Decisions Discussion Series - Economic Warfare (In-Person)

Broaden your perspective on important international issues, from the economy to climate change, by participating in all or any of the 8 weekly Great Decisions discussions.

A briefing book published by the non-partisan Foreign Policy Association provides a short informative article on each topic followed by suggested discussion questions. It is available for loan at the Winnetka or Northfield Library, or for purchase (to write in the margins and save) for $30 from the LWV-WNK Great Decisions chair, Joan Fragen - joanfragen@gmail.com or 847-446-0184; call for more information.

This series is led by participants who volunteer to lead one session.  Everyone reads the weekly topic in the briefing book as well as any other sources they may find and a stimulating and informative discussion always results!

The Great Decisions series is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Winnetka-Northfield-Kenilworth in cooperation with the Winnetka-Northfield Public Library District.


Weekly topic: Economic Warfare

Waging economic warfare consists of a variety of measures from implementing sanctions to fomenting labor strikes. Such tools are utilized by states to hinder their enemies, and in the case of the United States have been used as far back as the early 19th century. Since Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, economic warfare has been the main means for the west to challenge Russia. How effective will these sanctions be at convincing Russia to cease its war? By Jonathan Chanis.
