Economic Leverage Економічний важель (ua)

Economic levers can come in the form of foreign aid assistance, sanctions, and the use of loaned resources as bargaining chips to put pressure on a foreign government. This form of leverage is hardly new by any means, but it remains one of the most important and effective tools to influence decision-making in another country. Economic influence is also not solely limited to trade, but also includes other industries such as energy and tourism.
