    Economic warfare

    Non military warfare has been described as the basis for modern warfare, among all, economic warfare has been described as the most promising form of warfare.

    Are we seeing this now, is economic warfare going on on a large scale? Would the US ever attempt to use their tools to attack a stronger economy like the Euro, to strenghten themselves? Is the US attacking China with economic warfare?

    Is China attacking the west with economic warfare? Have they been doing so for a long time? China is growing ever faster and taking over more and more business from the west, is it using economic warfare to accomplish such things? Will Chinese economic warfare be unstoppable?

    Is propaganda and mainstream brainwashing part of programs to defame others and enhance oneself in a new age of advanced warfare? Is the US on the frontline in a global war against everyone? Is China leading a global war against the rest of the world without even firing a gun?

    Does economic warfare exist on a large scale in this day and age?

    China has some distorting trade policies, but nothing on the scale of "economic warfare." And of course the United States has nothing resembling economic warfare. Deep down you know this, but of course it just can't be possible that Greece could be the Eurozone's fault rather than America's...which is what this thread is REALLY about.

    All warfare is economic, the only thing that changes over time is the method of making war. That you do not understand this, in and of itself, renders moot anything else you might say on the subject.

    I'm looking for this among the poll options, but I don't see it.

    If we were interested in using economic warfare against the EU, we sure as hell wouldn't be contributing US dollars to help you guys bail out Greece.

    Maximus Zeebra,

    Explain to me why China, who needs to exports RMB to keep inflation down and continue funding its export growth market to keep political tension from flaring up want to wage economic warfare on the US?

    What makes you naive enough to believe this?

    How about China? They could be waging economic warfare against the west already. Just because we do not understand the methods, the actuality and the result, doesnt mean it doesnt exist.

    Undoubtfully the US has the biggest economic toolbox for economic warfare. All major credit rating agencies are US agencies, the US have a global currency, the US have big media(not as powerful as the UK economic media). The economist and financial times alone could definetely create big economic havoc if they so chose to, and who is to not understand that they have or havent?

    The best tactic would be to make economic warfare while pretending not to do so..

    A part of the Greek debt belongs to the American banks, so I am not sure that the Americans want to wage war against the European economy.

    A possible theater of economic war could be Africa where China fight against other economies (the Western ones) to control all the resources that the continent has.
