Future of American Power: The Rise of the Rest

Read a great article by Fareed Zakaria in Foreign Affairs. Zakharia talks about Britain's rise, peak on June 22, 1897 and the eventual decline of the country's influence as an economic power. The article explains why the US will not emulate Britain's decline. Instead, R&D spending, nanotechnology, life sciences, college education, creativity, entrepreneurship and an incredible ability to attract, accept and assimilate the rest of the world will allow us to muddle through. An outstanding read I recommend to everyone. Click here to read the article.
