"Leveraging Possession"

If were some elite financial mover-and-shaker, I'd encourage a policy of selling everything in America too big or difficult to be moved out of the country (basically land and buildings, but hell, cranes, cell phone towers, really anything bigger than a shipping container).

That way, when the oil supply (vs. demand) starts to really get short, it'll force china and/or whoever else into fighting an offensive war against us (USA to China:"Oh, by the way, those pesky state governments decided you don't really own all those power plants and skyscrapers. And who'd a thunk the supreme court would rule that (deeds-owned-by/contracts-with) Chinese entities were unconstitutional and therefore void? So sorry!", instead of a bunch of proxy wars in places mostly a lot closer and friendlier to china. I would call it "Leveraging Possession." As in leveraging the fact that possession is 9/10 of the law.
