Playing Games? Extortion, Expropriation and the Role of Political Risk Insurance

Discussion on Paris School of Economics Paper that Uses Game Theory Approach

 

Tuesday, November 1, 3-5pm • Auditorium J1-050, Enter at 701 18th Street, NW

A MIGA-commissioned paper explores extortion and expropriation sometimes faced by firms in countries with weak governance. What determines these practices? Does an investor’s use of political risk insurance (PRI) affect them? Can PRI improve governance?

Join the game! A discussion with one of the report’s authors will reveal the results—and present implications.
