Wednesday December 2 2015 Fareed Zakaria The PostAmerican World Political liberal centrist Rise of the Rest Thesis Not about the decline of America but rather about the rise of everyone else Over the past few decades countries all over the world have been experiencing rates of economic growth that were once unthinkable Zakaria sees poverty declining in the world in general There is a shift away from unipolarity as countries choose to forge ties with one another rather than following the US or the quotWestquot as a center of power He predicts that no country quotwill get its way entirely At the same time he says the US has enormous strengths and that the world is continually providing a diversity of forces that the US can navigate and help direct Zakaria favors a collective international response to terrorism over quotchest thumping unilateralism Rise of the rest is good for the US and the others The more countries that get rich and the larger the world economy the more people there are producing consuming investing saving loaning money If we didn39t have the rest of the world growing the United States economy would be in much worse shape than it is today Even though we are in a time of political unrest the economy is growing which is a sign of stability But this is a twoway street because of global interconnectedness problems require international responses A pandemic flu is more likely today than it was in the past and the bankruptcy of one nation will affect the economies of more than one nation
