Iran Task Force Illustrates Five Possible Scenarios That Could Impact Global Oil Prices and U.S. Economy

WASHINGTON, Oct. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, there is broad bipartisan support—among both presidential candidates, U.S. policymakers, and across the country—for preventing a nuclear Iran. Over the past year, a public debate has taken shape around the economic risks posed by preventing a nuclear Iran, whether through tough sanctions or military action against Iran's nuclear facilities. However, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) believes that inaction, too, exposes the U.S. to economic risks.

Next Wednesday, October 10, 2012, BPC's Foreign Policy Project (FPP) will hold a timely discussion on its new paper on Iran: The Price of Inaction: An Analysis of Energy and Economic Effects of a Nuclear Iran. The paper will describe five possible scenarios that could impact global oil prices and affect the U.S. economy if there was a nuclear Iran. It was developed by a bipartisan task force comprised of former elected leaders, policymakers, military officials, energy analysts and economists, including Ambassador Dennis Ross, economist Dr. Daniel Ahn and is co-chaired by Senator Charles Robb and General (ret.) Charles Wald.

Earlier this year, BPC released its fourth report on Iran that calls for a robust and comprehensive triple-track strategy towards the country, involving the simultaneous pursuit of diplomacy, sanctions, and visible credible preparations for a military option of last resort.
