INFOWARS: WHO PAYS THE PRICE?

16:00-17:15 Pavilion 4, Conference Hall 4.2


Encouraged or implored by the media frenzy that surrounds any prominent international conflict, politicians and statesmen have increasingly been relying on sanctions to hurt an unfavorable regime. But sanctions impact economic interests on all sides – a loss of capital for one is a loss of profit for another, and a closing of a market for an exporter means scarcity of goods for the importer nation. With Russia in the InfoWars cross-hairs, is it possible for international business players to resist the hype and focus on maximizing economic opportunity?
