Non-Importation

[non-im-pawr-tey-shuhn, -pohr-]
Non-Importation is defined in Webster's dictionary as "to Not import from". Examples date back from colonial times when the colonist signed documents promising not to import certain items from Britain or Europe. A more modern example is the Non-Importation act against Cuba. The United States has refused to export to or import from Cuba because of its communist government.
