World Affairs Council - Great Decisions Series

Economic statecraft and trade:
Dr. Debra Sabia
Georgia Southern University

America’s foreign policy tools are not limited to sanctions, treaties or military campaigns – they also include the sales pitch. The logic behind this pitch, or “economic statecraft,” is simple: promote the benefits of democracy and the free market. In so doing, the U.S. gains valuable and stable partners, both in business and in diplomacy; with a focus on Mexico and Latin America.

Dr. Debra Sabia joins our WNC circle of folks who have worked and studied in foreign policy and diplomatic fields. While on the faculty at Georgia Southern University, she has written two books on American politics: ~ American Myth of Democracy~ and ~Imagining Democracy~, as well as publishing articles on Latin American politics, liberation theology, and immigration to the United States.
