In the previous chapters we examined the theoretical implications of the case studies. Our purpose here is to make practical policy suggestions about instituting and carrying out economic coercion. These conclusions relate only to unilateral coercion by the United States (although some extrapolation to multilateral, but less than universal, coercion may be possible.) Despite the fact that most past theoretical study has focused on collective sanctions, the kind of unilateral coercion we have studied is far more common.
