In this powerful satirical medal, dated 1915, Goetz derided any American claims of neutrality in the war, despite
President Wilson's specific declaration of 'strict neutrality' on 15 August 1914. Rather, Goetz argued, the temptation felt by US business
to exploit to the full an export boom and sympathy for the Allied cause, by supplying vital war munitions and raw materials, superseded any
acknowledgment of declared legal or political principles governing the USA's international conduct. The reverse text complements the
tendentious imagery and is translated as 'America's neutral trade'.
