Big Stick, Dollar and Moral Diplomacy
We must send the military to help Panama become independent. I will use my military as the "Big Stick"
As I've always said, speak softly but carry a big stick. You take your ships to Panama. I want to build that canal!
Yes Sir President Roosevelt. We will intimidate them until they give in.
That "Big Stick" was nothing but trouble. I will use dollars not bullets to achieve my goals.
We need to increase U.S. investments in businesses in Central America. I want our trade expanded by "Dollar Diplomacy".
Yes Sir President Taft. We can increase investments in foreign banks too.
The "Big Stick" and "Dollar" policies of the past will not do. Real diplomacy is through respect and friendship.
I will show Latin America that we understand their position and mean to support their self-government. Friendship will achieve our goals.
