Do you expect the US will continue to be the leading economic and political power for much longer?

"None of the great nation-states or empires of history – The Persians, Rome; imperial Spain in 1600; The Ottoman Turkish Empire, France in either its Bourbon or Bonapartist manifestations; the Dutch republic in 1700; Britain in its imperial glory – succeeded in maintaining its global ascendancy for long. Why should you believe that the US will be the only exception in history to this? China and India are on the rise....does it not seem realistic to believe that they will soon overtake the US as the world's power brokers? And where will that leave the US and its citizens?"
