Oil Embargo: Third Time’s a Charm?

May 3rd, 2012

How effective is an oil embargo on Iran? Will a third oil embargo bring about change in the Iranian government's stance on their nuclear program? What are the Iranians doing to prepare in order to prevent their economy from collapsing? What are those countries who used to be consumers of Iranian oil doing to make sure their oil needs are still met? What are the unintended consequences of this embargo? These questions and more are answered by Dr. Sara Vakhshouri, President at SVB Energy and former advisor to the Director of the National Iranian Oil Company International.
