Cato’s John Glaser joins the show to talk about the new oil sanctions on Iran. He and Scott discuss what this means for U.S. relations with Iran, beginning with the fact that sanctions only achieve the policy desired by the imposing nation about 30% of the time, and a dismal 5% of the time when the concern is security, as opposed to economic. In general, says Glaser, President Trump has taken the wrong approach to negotiating with foreign countries, even though his instincts are often good. He seems to believe that bluster and threats are the way to make a deal, instead of just trying to make friends outright.
