PSSI's Chairman and Co-Founder Roger W. Robinson, Jr. gave a guest lecture to Charles University students


Charles University students taking a class on Economic Warfare had a chance to attend a guest lecture by PSSI's Chairman and Co-Founder Roger W. Robinson, Jr. who talked about Russia's and China's activities in the financial and economic domain.

As a former Senior Director of International Economic Affairs at the National Security Council (NSC) in the Reagan administration and the principal architect of the economic and financial strategy for the take-down of the Soviet Union, Mr. Robinson was able to draw interesting parallels between the current situation and the Cold War. He also explained that the CEE region is especially vulnerable because smaller economies allow for one deal to create a strong grip on a strategic sector.
