Joint Cabinet Crisis (JCC)
Head Chair | Michael Eliot
Vice-Chairs | Patrick Boldea, Andy Luo, Michael McDonald, Tushita Saraf, Jake Tibbetts
Topic | Trade Wars: Anglo-Dutch East India Companies
Joint Crisis Council (JCC) has always been about competition. Two different groups of delegates, each utilizing crisis procedure, battle it out against each other using strategy, subterfuge, and diplomacy for supremacy over the other. This year, JCC looks at the era from the 1600-1700’s; a time when trade was controlled by government sponsored trade organizations, the biggest of which were the British East India Company (EIC) and the Dutch East India Company (VOC). Delegates will assume the role of traders in either the EIC or VOC, and have to use their economic, political, and military skills to take control of the spice trades, and bask in the riches spawned from mercantilism.
