The Post-American World

Fareed Zakaria has written a new book! (from his Web site):
In The Post-American World, Fareed Zakaria argues that the "rise of the rest" is the great story of our time.

"This is not a book about the decline of America, but rather about the rise of everyone else." So begins Fareed Zakaria's important new work on the era we are now entering. Following on the success of his best-selling The Future of Freedom, Zakaria describes with equal prescience a world in which the United States will no longer dominate the global economy, orchestrate geopolitics, or overwhelm cultures. He sees the "rise of the rest"—the growth of countries like China, India, Brazil, Russia, and many others—as the great story of our time, and one that will reshape the world. The tallest buildings, biggest dams, largest-selling movies, and most advanced cell phones are all being built outside the United States. This economic growth is producing political confidence, national pride, and potentially international problems. How should the United States understand and thrive in this rapidly changing international climate? What does it mean to live in a truly global era? Zakaria answers these questions with his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination.
It comes out in May. I'll be pre-ordering my copy. If you're interested in the real major challenge to the U.S. in the 21st Century (hint: it isn't al-Qaeda and it rhymes with vaChina), I'd suggest you do the same.

It would not be surprising if other countries were finally catching up to America after following America's free enterprise example, particularly given America's promotion of such systems. However, they still have a long way to go. The gross domestic product of the second largest economy, Japan, is less than one-third the size of the U.S.'s, according to the International Monetary Fund. If and when other countries do catch up, however, it should be viewed as the triumph of American ideals, and not as some kind of loss.

In addition, I take issue with the subtitle that claims that "America is losing the ability to dictate to this new world." When was the last time that America had the ability to dictate to the world? Certainly not during the Cold War, when more than half the world's population was subject to communist regimes hostile to the U.S. If America continues to prevail in its fight against oppressiveness, threats to freedom will decline, freedom will become more and more prevalent, and wealth will follow. This is positive, and the world will (and already does) owe America a debt of gratitude.
