Currency Wars, Economic Diplomacy, Economic Warfare, Indirect Strategies and State Capitalism are among the various factors impacting increasingly contemporary power rivalries. 

Classical economic theories on international exchanges are not reflecting all aspects of international economic relations in which economic decisions are often fashioned along the tactics and strategies advocated by Sun Tzu and Machiavelli and these decisions often depend to an important extent on “non-market” factors. Geoeconomic analysis integrates various non-market factors, strategic frameworks, cultural, historical and geographic parameters, among others to decipher the complexity of contemporary economic power rivalries.
