America in the World: Past, Present, & Future

Last week, Robert Kagan, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute, wrote a great article addressing whether the United States is in decline.

In his article, Mr. Kagan exemplifies many of the principles of discourse celebrated by this blog. He clearly defines what he is talking about and addresses the discussion of US global influence with specific examples and statistics.

The state of the American economic, political, and cultural influence is a topic worthy of continued discussion, and Mr. Kagan does a great job of putting things in some perspective. The article is long but should be required reading for anybody who wants to throw their two cents into a modern political discussion. Well worth your time.

Here is another link to the article:
