Talk:Economic nationalism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


Some academics (such as Eric Helleiner 2002) have recently proposed that economic nationalism should be defined in terms of its nationalist content rather than eg. a variant of realism or an ideology of protectionism. Economic nationalism should thus be viewed in terms of the motivations driving policies rather than the policies themselves. In this sense, it is possible that advocacy of "neoliberal" policies such as open markets and free trade, or more generally "globalisation" are not necessarily inconsistent with economic nationalism, if they are imposed with the motivation of promoting the national interest. - unsigned

Indeed. It is a blend of economics and politics. WAS 4.250 17:55, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

Suggestions for Improvement[edit]

  1. The article does not explain how or if "economic nationalism" is different from Mercantilism.
  2. The article make no mention of the economic policies of Nazi Germany and fascist states of the 1920s-40s; I think the motives, goals and policies of those nations have been described by some scholars as clear examples of "economic nationalism."
  3. The article does not mention that Stephen K. Bannon, White House Chief Strategist to President Trump, has declared himself in a recent interview to be an "economic nationalist." — Preceding unsigned comment added by Credidimus2 (talkcontribs) 21:23, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

On those trumponomics ...[edit]

While it is nice to see that someone compares the US to Germany and references a world banker's blog for this, it doesn't make the blogger's entry any more correct. The reasons for Germany's increase in productivity was mostly due to harmonization of currencies (single currency) and the removal of trade barriers between Germany's states (remember: Germany is a federation of smaller states), namely the removal of taxes for inter-Germany trade. And that a politician of Roosevelt's party misrepresents facts to push for his own agenda isn't anything new. Also, that Kaiser Wilhelm vastly increased the naval fleet of Germany and thus increased demand for local steel and coal, which of course boosted economy, but also led to the first world war, isn't an example of economic nationalism.

I am going to remove the trumponomics quote, as Germany under the Kaiser Wilhelm is not an example of economic nationalism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:07, 26 February 2017 (UTC)
