HISTORY
Asked by Audrey

What was the U.S. Policy of Imperialism in the early 1900's?

The US followed the policies of isolationism prior to WWI, which is why they did not get involved in both world wars until their later stages. This allowed the US to grow into a leading economy and by exporting supplies to countries in war, and a boost of its industrialisation during war-time. However, this is not to say that it did not attempt to exert American influence on other countries, especially within the larger Americas. The Platt Amendment signed with Cuba in 1901 meant that it had the power to intervene with Cuban Affairs, Cuba essentially becoming an American protectorate following the Spanish-American war. The USSR also saw America’s foreign policy of the Marshall Plan as “Dollar Imperialism” during the 1940s, whereby making other countries financially dependent on the US, was it able to exert large degrees of influence.
