The Sword and the Dollar

Program #PARM019. Recorded in Vancouver, WA on January 28, 1999.

U.S. foreign policy objectives sometimes conflict with its professed values. On the one hand, the U.S. affirms its dedication to democracy and human rights, and on the other, it supports dictators and repressive regimes. Do the interests of large U.S.-based multinational corporations factor into the formulation of foreign policy? What role does the world's most powerful military force play? Is there an intersection between the sword and the dollar?
