A video with an Erik Prince quite different from the one we were used to know when he was in the lead of Blackwater. Today, as a businessman, he talks critically about the cost of war and the way the US Government "helps" the populations hit by war
Erik Prince is an American businessman and former U.S. Navy SEAL officer best known for founding the government services and security company Blackwater USA, now known as Academi.
He served as its CEO until 2009 and later as chairman, until Blackwater Worldwide was sold in 2010 to a group of investors.
Prince currently heads the private equity firm Frontier Resource Group and is chairman of Hong Kong-listed Frontier Services Group Ltd. He lives in both Middleburg, Virginia and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
This video is from a presentation that Erik Prince had days ago at the Oxford Union Society, a quite important debating society in Oxford with an unparalleled reputation for bringing international guests and speakers to Oxford.
Since 1823, the Union has been promoting debate and discussion not just in Oxford University, but across the globe.
