Emerging Pattern

In 2006

I spent some time reading this weekend, a good activity while waiting for the gas company to arrive to turn on my heat...Anyway, I may struggle to articulate this, but it becoming apparent that there is an emerging pattern whereby the world seems to be organizing itself in such a way as to bypass the United States. Growing importance of the Chinese and Indian economies, U.S. multilateralism and fiscal recklessness, the reemergence of leftist nationalism in South America all seem to be on a path of convergence to an international system the relagates the United States to a international backwater, although still an important part of the world economy...for now.

Ok, so now that I've thrown that out there, I'm going to leave it lie for a while and pull together information that supports my thesis. Think about until then please.
