Abstract: Three chapters are included in my dissertation. These three chapters concern the interplay between national security policies and corporate behavior. The first chapter focuses on corporate investment. The second chapter examines financial analysts behavior. The third chapter investigates information exchanges within the sovereign debt market. This dissertation sheds new light on the consequences of this relevant but unexplored policy area.

Keywords: National Security, Corporate Investment, Banks.
