Definition of 'Autarky'

A nation or entity that is self-sufficient. A political/economic term, Autarky comes from the Greek autarkeia - autos, meaning "self" and arkein, meaning "to be strong enough or sufficient". Autarky is achieved when an entity, such as a political state, is self-sufficient and exists without external aid.
