The State of States' Sanctions on Russia
Show Notes

A growing number of U.S. states have imposed their own sanctions on Russia over its invasion of Ukraine.  But are those sanctions legal? And what other tools might states have at their disposal to show support for the U.S. government's sanctions against Russia's universally-condemned actions against Ukraine? 

In this episode, Deep Dive host Rich Ehisen talks with U.C. Berkeley assistant professor of finance Anastassia Fedyk about state-level sanctions, the impact of free market actions against Russia and the pressure states will face in the light of President Biden blocking further imports of Russian oil and gas.
