Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... US international economic policy is for, which is the pursuit of profit by transnational corporations that by accident of history happen to be headquartered in the US.

If US international economic policy was for job creation and pursuit of national interest, it is possible to pursue economic relationships that are in the national interest of Latin American and sub-Saharan African nations, and soft power is far more effective when pursuing mutual advantage than when, as at present, attempting to mobilize private interests in the international arena to counter the national interest of the international "partner".

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
