What does "posturing" means in political/economical contexts?
Recently I read/heard many people saying "there's a lot of posturing going on..."
Thank you very much in advance.
Posturing is like posing or taking a position for show.
Politicians will make exaggerated claims or express political attitudes to get reactions from the public or other politicians. It's a mental game with the media as the playing field.1. To assume an exaggerated or unnatural pose or mental attitude; attitudinize. 2. To assume a pose.
