Economic and Military Power

The Chinese economy will soon be as big as the US economy. To make matters worse, America has a huge debt problem, much of it owed to China.

As the US becomes a second rate economic power, so it will no longer be able to use economic power to control the world. China is far more effective at using economic power to gain influence throughout the world.

This leaves the US dependent on military power to control the world. As the economic strength of the United States continues to decline, it will most likely become more aggressive in efforts to control the world using military force.

The implications are explained in this book.
