Often it appears the USA believes the economic world revolves around us. It reminds me of leaders of the distant past who believed the Universe revolved around the earth.
We need to understand, our mere 308 million people is a drop in the bucket to the global population.
Emerging countries are organizing as economic powers. Billions of people are moving forward without us.
Soon we will need to recognize the economic world does not revolve around us. Will we understand or just ignore the truth and destroy ourselves? As Bob Dylan said "Times, they are a-changin."
