Abstract : Foreign economic development and prosperity support the national security of the United States by contributing to domestic prosperity, increasing foreign social stability, and reducing the likelihood of armed conflict. While the value of economic and political liberalization may be universally accepted, problems in developing, implementing, and sustaining a consistent development policy to achieve these goals have made that policy elusive. This paper examines the tension between political and economic liberalization, introduces the continuum of legitimate paths toward economic liberalization, and demonstrates the practical use of this continuum as an analytic tool in the case of Slovenia. Finally, it concludes with some general policy recommendations for the United States.
