This comment explores the relation between geoeconomics and geopolitics from a critical realist, strategic-relational, and cultural political economy perspective. We disambiguate the 'geo-' family of concepts; introduce a more complex view of sociospatiality that enables a taxonomy of approaches to geopolitical analytical objects and inquiries; and illustrate this from China's Belt and Road Initiative seen as a complex geopolitical imaginary and linked modes of multi-spatial metagovernance.
