The end of empire

September 9th, 2002 § Comments off

The Nation is running an interesting article by William Greider arguing that America’s trade deficit will eventually spell an end to its imperialist ambitions. The appropriate response, according to Greider, is not to reduce the country’s trade deficit but to accept America’s decline as a world power and “concentrate on building a different, more promising society at home.” Sounds okay to me.
