Economic nationalism

Economic nationalism is a form of nationalism that prioritizes the protection of a nation-state's domestic economic interests and independence in the face of globalism.[1] It often does this by reducing its imports from foreign lands, along with foreign investment, and favors domestic trade and investment.[2] It is related to protectionism, though the two are not necessarily mutually inclusive. Some liberal commentators consider economic nationalism to be synonymous to mercantilism and see it as a threat to the liberal and globalist economic world order.[3]

Notable examples of economic nationalists include Steve Bannon[4] and Donald Trump,[5] along with Matteo Salvini, Viktor Orbán, and Marine Le Pen, among others.
