Question and answer
Q: The _______ demanded that Latin American countries keep their financial affairs on order or risk intervention by the United States. A. Good Neighbor Policy B. Knox Policy C. Monroe
Doctrine D. Roosevelt Corollary
A: Answer: This demanded that Latin American countries keep their financial affairs on order or risk intervention by the United States D. Roosevelt Corollary. President Theodore Roosevelt, "Chronic wrongdoing . . . [ may in America, as elsewhere, ultimately require intervention by some civilized nation," he announced in his annual message to Congress in December 1904, "and in the Western
Hemisphere the adherence of the United States to the Monroe Doctrine may force the United States, however reluctantly, in flagrant cases of such wrongdoing or impotence, to the exercise of an international police power." Roosevelt tied his policy to the Monroe Doctrine, and it was also consistent with his foreign policy of "walk softly, but carry a big stick." Roosevelt stated that in keeping with the Monroe Doctrine, the United States was justified in exercising "international police power" to put an end to chronic unrest or wrongdoing in the Western Hemisphere. This so-called Roosevelt Corollary-a corollary is an extension of a previous idea-to the Monroe Doctrine contained a great irony. The Monroe Doctrine had been sought to prevent European intervention in the Western Hemisphere, but now the Roosevelt Corollary justified American intervention throughout the Western Hemisphere. It wasn't long before the corollary was put into action. The Dominican Republic could not pay its debts and to protect American interests the United States took over the customs houses and established a customs receivership. /question/index qid... ]
