U.S. Imperialism Dollar Diplomacy

      Dollar diplomacy is a certain form of diplomacy that involves gaining or investing in foreign nations to make them more stable. The term is often used to compare represent efforts preformed in self-interest by the United States; dollar diplomacy in this way of the word is diplomacy that will benefit the interests of the U.S. This moral was that diplomacy has been practiced for a long time by a number of nations, not just the United States. This term became popular during the term of President Taft, who used dollar diplomacy to "send dollars instead of guns" to areas in that the United States had an interest.

 

      The United States government expected certain favors from the countries it was helping. Sometimes the United States used dollar diplomacy so that it could play a role in shaping regulatory policy in a way that would be beneficial for American companies. This included pressuring companies to enact lax laws to protect workers, limiting taxation of foreign companies, and other activities. Dollar diplomacy was also used to secure political power, as seen when the United States reserved the right to vet appointees to key political positions, and sometimes to outright appoint them.

Dollar Diplomacy

My thought is that why is substituting dollars for bullets when bullets should be supplied? To me this makes no sence at all. The document is showing what Roosevelt had to do with the Dollar Diplomacy. It also shows Thafts view on things and cooperation from other countries.
