Countries that complain about U.S. economic sanctions usually do not have the economic clout to impose them. This has been the case with China through the years; however, as China's global economic reach has increased, so has her use of this, at times, very effective tool to advance national interests.

If they do not work, then why do so many folks complain about them to begin with? I think we will see more, not less use of economic sanctions in the future. Companies will need to adapt and become more aggressive in the compliance arena.

Foreign Policy magazine's blog, FP, has a good post and set of links on this issue: Is China becoming a sanctioning state?
