Title: Can sanctions bring democracy to Burma?
Date of publication: April 1998
Description/subject: When the U.S government announced its plans to impose sanctions o­n Burma, opposition groups both inside the country and abroad hailed the decision. In April 1997 the US administration moved to outlaw new investments by American businesses in military-ruled Burma. But after almost a year some anti-sanctions critics in Rangoon are speaking out.

Title: Sanctions impact
Date of publication: April 1998
Description/subject: It is hard to measure the direct economic impact of the U.S. investment ban. Apart from some natural gas ventures and a few high profile manufacturers, the country has not attracted many U.S. businesses. For o­ne thing, Burma’s consumers earn o­n average less than $300 per year and pay with a currency that is not easily convertible.
