At the end of World War II, America had all the money and all the power. Now, after the Great Crash of 2008, America is cash poor. In The End of Influence, world-renowned economists Stephen Cohen and Brad DeLong argue that this loss will have grave consequences for Americas standing in the world, even as it opens up new opportunities for a new multilateralism.
Our new era will be marked by a loss of American power to dictate foreign policy, a loss of American soft cultural power, and a loss of entrepreneurial innovation worldwide. An essential read for business executives and connoisseurs of world politics alike, The End of Influence exposes these alarming trendsand tells us what we can do to maintain stability in the world.

WANT TO UNDERSTAND THE WORLD NOW??
Pragmatic, unflinching discussion of what is happening NOW in terms of the rise of the rest of the world, especially China and India-- and the implications for the United States. THIS IS NOT A "sky-is-falling" diatribe on the decline of America. THIS BOOK SHOULD BE REQUIRED READING FOR EVERY AMERICAN AND ESPECIALLY ALL AMERICAN POLITICIANS.
America needs to understand that a great source of its vitality has always been new immigrants. Recognize this fact and embrace a worldview that is not a "zero-sum" game. Learn the lessons from the rise and fall of the British Empire.
Brilliant, succint description of what is going on in the world and the opportunities it presents for America.
