Two primary Interests Imve nl- ways Influenced the playing of those cards. One was the Monroe Doctrine, now a Pan,-American policy, which forbids overseas .ia- lions !rom getting a territorial foothold in the Americas. The other svas trade. Today the two are closely linked together.

Much nf^ the trade taken over from thej warring •nations of Europe during "'' the World War remains with Uic United Stales. But the nature of that trade is changing. Up to 1920, nearly all trade of South American nations was in the export of raw materials, and import of basic manufactured goods. They would send out cotton and get back shirts.
