Orde F. Kittrie

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes and analyzes the U.S. government’s aggressive financial lawfare campaign against Iran. Section I discusses this lawfare against Iran in conceptual context. Section II describes and analyzes the key nexus between U.S. financial lawfare and Iran’s nuclear weapons program and state sponsorship of terrorism: Iran’s use of the international financial system to advance those objectives. Section III provides an overview of key innovative elements of U.S. financial lawfare against Iran. Section IV describes and analyzes the impact of U.S. financial lawfare, including persuading most major foreign banks to curtail business with Iran, costing the Iranian economy tens of billions of dollars and imposing billions of dollars in penalties on foreign banks that persisted in trading with Iran. Section V systematically details how the U.S. government has implemented financial lawfare against Iran. Section VI discusses lessons learned and the future of U.S. financial and other economic lawfare.
