Kissinger Warns Business: Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger warned executives against investing in the Soviet Union because the country is suffering an economic crisis. Kissinger also told a Tokyo symposium on the Soviet Union in Tokyo that the West should maintain its military guard in case current economic reforms fail and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev is ousted from office. “If everything (Soviet reforms) is really due to the personality of only one Soviet leader, we are all in deep trouble because his term in office is bound to be more or less short,” Kissinger said. Companies all over the world have shown increasing interest in business with the Soviet Union since Gorbachev initiated his “perestroika” economic restructuring.
