the main reason why the United States had few foreign investments before 1890 was that
a. the american people did not believe in imperialism
b. congress had prohibited all loans to foreign countries
c. the development of the west offered a profitable field for the investment of capital
d. foreign countries did not need our capital
i think that it is C but i am not sure
C looks good to me, too.
