Frank R. Gunter is an Associate Professor of Economics at Lehigh University and author of the new book “The Political Economy of Iraq.” A retired Marine Reserve Colonel, he was mobilized after 9/11 and served as both Senior Civilian Economics Advisor for Multi-National Corps—Iraq at Camp Victory, Iraq and military Chief of Economics Section for Multi-National Force—Iraq (MNF-I) in Baghdad, Iraq with similar responsibilities. In this session of Geopolitics, we will explore Iraq’s current and future political, economic, and social status, with particular attention to corruption, political instability, and petroleum.
Each month, Geopolitics with Granieri, Director of FPRI’s Center for the Study of America and the West, features a conversation—some might say an interrogation—with guest scholars on subjects in the news, and includes substantial audience participation. The program runs on the second Tuesday of every month.
