Adam Tooze: How Sanctions Work (and Why they Often Don't)Historians in the News
tags: Iran, international relations, sanctions
About Ones and Tooze: Foreign Policy economics columnist Adam Tooze, a history professor and a popular author, is encyclopedic about basically everything: from the COVID shutdown, to climate change, to pasta sauce. On our new podcast, Tooze and FP deputy editor Cameron Abadi will look at two data points each week that explain the world: one drawn from the week’s headlines and the other from just about anywhere else Tooze takes us. Check out Adam Tooze’s column here.
Representatives of Iran, the United States, and European countries met this week in Vienna for more talks on reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, but all sides seemed doubtful that an agreement could be reached.
On Ones and Tooze this week, Adam Tooze and Cameron Abadi discuss the toll U.S.-led sanctions have had on Iranians for much of the past decade—devastating the country’s economy but failing to curb its nuclear program.
Also on the show: The travel and tourism industries accounted for a whopping 10.4 percent of GDP worldwide. Then COVID-19 came along.
