Eurasia Group is a political risk consulting and advisory firm, with a network of experts and resources in 90 countries. They specialize in helping clients understand how politics and markets interact around the world.

With rising trade wars developing across the globe, Eurasia Group would like the Capstone team to conduct a historical analysis of other times in history when trade wars have been used to address political problems. Is what we’re seeing now fundamentally different or is this a new variation on an old theme? The Capstone team will: 

  • Identify current trade wars being waged, comparing and contrasting the motivations and methods; 
  • Identify historical examples that shed light on current events, either in terms of motivations or methods being employed; 
  • Using historical examples, provide reasonable forecasts where these trade wars go from here, and how likely other countries are to employ similar methods.
