War by Other Means: Why the U.S. reaches for the gun instead of the purse

Today, nations increasingly carry out geopolitical combat through economic means. Policies governing everything from trade and investment to energy and exchange rates are wielded as tools to win diplomatic allies, punish adversaries, and coerce those in between. But, as Jennifer M. Harris, a fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, will assert, America still too often reaches for the gun over the purse to advance its interests abroad. The U.S. currently has sanctions against Iran, North Korea, Syria and Cuba, and recently lifted sanctions on trade with Sudan.
