Hill;6/13/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 70, p23
The author reflects on the move of key legislators in each state to force pension systems to stop investing in companies that do business in Iran due to its nuclear weapons program. He states that cutting foreign investment in the energy sector will destabilize the Iranian regime. He believes that legislators can exert maximum leverage and can force Iran to give up its nuclear program through economic disinvestment in its energy and banking industries.
