Global Politics and Financial Sanctions: Listen to an Insider


Financial sanctions are the new warfare and Juan Zarate wrote the book based upon his roles in the U.S. Treasury and as a deputy national security adviser to the President. He’s also a senior security analyst for CBS news. His book “Treasury’s War: The Unleashing of a New Era of Financial Warfare” explains the geo-political landscape of financial sanctions and the projection of non-military power. Our conversation is applied to the Ukraine and Russia. Also, why isn’t the United States using sanctions against Turkey even though they are flagrantly laundering money to al Qaeda and Iran through international businessmen like Reza Zarrab and Yasin al-Qadi? We also discuss U.S. vulnerabilities in cyber-technology and trade policies. Do trade policies such as TPP help or hurt America? Is it good that almost half of US equities are owned by foreign investors from countries such as China and Japan? It’s all here if you can handle the truth. It will affect your perspectives.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
