World Peace Through Trade

Gary Alan Spanovich is Executive Director of the Wholistic Peace Institute (WPI). He will discuss WPI’s work as a peacemaking, a research, and an educational organization which works directly with Nobel Peace Laureates to “end war and stop the killing”. Gary will share some of the personal stories about Nobel Peace Laureates and how they use the “values of reconciliation and forgiveness” to prevent war and end conflict.

    Is this a one-sided discussion? Does anyone else feel that, conversely, the great powers tend to use trade limitations as a tool to create war?
