The policy presented by Truman is defensive, that is to say, a policy of containment in which it was sought to curb the Communism imposed by the Soviet Union and which was considered a threat to American capitalism, considering it as an interventionism of this nation to the underdeveloped countries.
The words that Truman presented to welcome this policy of containment were: that people should be helped to shape their own destiny, presenting two forms of life: the first was the individual virtues and the second was the suppression of the same by a minority. The citizen was free to choose which way of life he wanted to lead.
Truman’s policy was more defensive than offensive. This can be seen in the Marshall Plan where he used economic to rebuild war-torn as an incentive to promote democracy. Though he would not use military force, He vowed to support countries against communism and this was seen in the establishment of NATO as a deterrent to Russian expansion.
Hope this helps! :)

c. the dred scott v. sandford case,
the phenomenon that would be cited as evidence of increased economic interdependence between europe and the americas is the development of mercantilism.
this theory suggests that the wealth of a country depends on its economic assets, or capital.
hope this : )
