Abstract and Keywords

This chapter, which examines the relation among trade, foreign aid, and economic warfare and their role in the Cold War, suggests that these three economic activities are intertwined and explains that subsidized trade with client states is a form of aid while embargoed trade is a type of economic warfare. It argues that trade, aid, and economic warfare co-determined the outcome of the cold war struggle, and that Cold War economic competition and the failures and successes of the rival states paved the way for a new wave of globalization which began in the 1980s and expanded after 1989. The chapter also considers several key developments of the Cold War period that are important components of contemporary globalization.

Keywords: trade, foreign aid, economic warfare, Cold War, globalization, embargoed trade
