Upshot?[edit]

so what economic sanctions that have worked and if not why didn't they work? South Africa? Not sure that the sanctions did end apartheid...

Were the Iraq trade sanctions designed to bottle up the oil remaining in Iraq for future use by who ever took control of the country as oil supplies begin to dwindle? They seem unusually harsh just for punishment over the Kuwait invasion...

The people havd a write and a demand to see ME!

Comprehensive list[edit]

It would be interesting to list all countries currently subject to economic sanctions. -- Beland (talk) 16:35, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

It would be. Lets do it then. 167.206.48.221 (talk) 17:53, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Could economic sanctions against the USA be possible?[edit]

Would it be possible to impose economic sanctions against the USA? 86.176.190.13 (talk) 03:47, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

It has the largest military industrial complex that humanity has ever known- it's military spending is half of the worlds. I'm guessing if someone tried, they would be "liberated", and have whatever resources they were withholding, just taken.
Steel Tariff 2002. EU was going to do it and USA backed down from its tariff. So yea, it is possible. 167.206.48.221 (talk) 17:55, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Merge from Embargo[edit]

An embargo is just a particularly strong form of economic sanctions, and there's no clear dividing line between the two. There is a large amount of content overlap (examples, rationale, assessment of effectiveness) and very little (explanation of vocabulary) that does not. I would like to merge the articles so we can take advantage of the contributions to both in a single, unified form, and make progress faster since less work will be required than doing this in two different places. -- Beland (talk) 02:01, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

@Beland: Is "embargo" considered to be synonymous with "economic sanctions", according to any expert on this subject? Jarble (talk) 22:47, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
@Jarble: Sure, this expert piece uses the two words as synonyms. The dictionary definition of sanction encompasses non-economic prohibitions, which is also true of the some of the meanings in the dictionary definition of embargo. But the article embargo only deals with economic embargoes (not say embargoing of a press release, which is a common usage in journalism). So the content of embargo is a good candidate for merging with economic sanctions but not the other articles linked from the disambiguation page sanction or the intro of international sanctions.
Various parties have compared the definitions [1] [2] [3] and they seem to agree that "embargo" can be "complete" (which might be implied if there is no modifier) or "partial" (usually explicitly specified) while "sanctions" does not imply the degree to which trade is restricted unless further specified by other words. More authoritative sources could probably be found, but these explanations agree with how I hear those words used in the news media. -- Beland (talk) 16:39, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
