    Hitting Reset on E.O. 13959 | EMBARGOED! Episode 31

    Hitting Reset on E.O. 13959 | EMBARGOED! Episode 31

    Brian and Tim kick things off by analyzing the complete do-over called by the Biden administration with respect to E.O. 13959 and contemplate what that means for the future of U.S. person restrictions relating to investments in publicly traded securities of Chinese Military-Industrial Complex Companies. Next, we consider the possible sanctions implications of the new White House directive targeting corruption and check in on the future of the Burma sanctions program in light of the deepening crisis. Finally, in the Lightning Round, we decipher the latest news on JCPOA 2.0, discuss the possible repercussions of Hamas touting its digital currency fundraising efforts, and evaluate recent criticism of the glacial pace of ECRA implementation.

Finally, in the Lightning Round, we share quick thoughts on the recent removal of the UAE from Treasury’s list of boycotting countries and a new legislative proposal that would expand CFIUS jurisdiction to certain transactions with U.S. institutions of higher education.

A podcast for the workday!

As a newbie export control practitioner and long time podcast enthusiast, the intersection of export control knowledge and updates in a podcast is so relevant to me! Easy to follow and enjoyable to listen. A definite work-day listening requirement.

Lightning round! (Pew pew pew)

Awesome show, Brian and Tim are the best and bring incredibly intelligent takes on the topics at hand

Sanctions Practitioner ,

Breezy discussions about export controls and sanctions

Provides a high-level overview of US sanctions and export control developments in a breezy/informal way. But, both speakers are sometimes imprecise in their discussions about legal issues. Brian also has a strange way of mispronouncing the last name of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
