AMERICA'S PLACE IN THE WORLD

Is talk of "America's demise" warranted or premature? In this 3-week series, we'll explore both lines of thought, but our emphasis will be on the latter point of view. Barring a Trump victory in November (a critical stipulation), America may very well remain "the indispensable nation."

Description

These days it’s common to encounter long political screeds about the decline of America,

and our “lost” standing in world affairs. While the rise of Donald Trump is usually cited as the “presenting problem,” other dimensions of global realpolitik figure in as well. Russia and China now openly challenge U.S. preeminence, while a growing number of other countries are now asserting independent and influential roles in the shaping of the world order.

Certainly, neither major American political party has  come to grips with this evolving world order, though the Democrats are widely viewed abroad as by far the more responsible party.

In this series, though, we’ll be exploring the possibility that (depending of course on the outcome of the 2024 elections), the gloomy talk may not be warranted. Although  America’s global role is clearly changing, the U.S. may still be (in the words of Madeleine Albright) “the indispensable nation.”
