In Latin America, it was the Roosevelt Corollary of 1904 that stated U.S. police made sure debts got paid, and European countries won’t invade. This was probably used as an excuse to come over known as “Big Stick Diplomacy." The Dollar Diplomacy, written by William H. Taft, encouraged and protected American businesses in foreign countries.
