EMBARGOED!: Top 10 Stories of 2021


In the year's final episode, Brian and Tim run through a Lightning Round-style discussion of the top economic sanctions and export controls stories of 2021. In no particular order, they discuss: the U.S. hitting the policy reset button, successful court challenges, China!, the slow death of JCPOA 2.0, virtual currency and ransomware, Russia's reemergence, turbulent times yield lots of new sanctions programs and policies, Huawei's CFO gets a DPA, all quiet in the Americas, and a renewed focus on anti-corruption, democracy, and human rights. See you in 2022! Stay sanctions free!
