Case Set No. 1: The Cuban Missile Crisis and the Iranian Hostage Crisis. Remember, these case studies were very historically important, so please don’t give me a summary of the case studies..I lived through both of these events so I know that facts. What I want you to do is to compare the following:
1) Why was one successful while the other failed miserably
2) What empirical frameworks were used, if any.
3) Use what you have learned in the textbook about Category I or II decision, Open or Closed Decision Making, talk about what “Constraints” each decision maker(s) faced in making decisions.
4) What would you have done differently in the Iranian Hostage situation if you were President Carter ?
