"The Social Market Roots of Democratic Peace"

Journal Article, International Security, issue 4, volume 33

By Michael Mousseau, Former Research Fellow, International Security Program, 2005-2006

Democracy does not cause peace among nations. An analysis of conflicts from 1961 to 2001 shows that the absence of war between democratic countries depends on domestic economic factors-such as a contract-intensive economy-rather than on democracy. Because China and Russia lack this type of economy, an economic divide will define great power politics in the coming decade. Democratic leaders of nations with contract-intensive economies would do better to support global economic opportunity than to promote democracy abroad.

"Market Civilization and Its Clash with Terror"

Journal Article, International Security, issue 3, volume 27

By Michael Mousseau, Former Research Fellow, International Security Program, 2005-2006

Michael Mousseau begins with a cautionary note: The United States and its friends and allies cannot rely exclusively on a military strategy to defeat terrorists. A political strategy is also necessary—one that must begin with an understanding of the social origins of terrorist support.
