Recalibrating the Global Balance of Power (DIEEEO63-2014)

The last decades have brought the rise of Asian powers, in particular China. In parallel, over the same period, the United States has shown signs of relative decline. This notwithstanding, social, (geo)political, demographic, energy, military and -perhaps most importantly- economic factors point to significant challenges for China as it moves up the ladder of development, as well as to renewed North American strength and momentum. In light of these data, the seemingly inexorable rise of the Asian giant, and the decline of the world’s current superpower, is examined.
