Abstract:

America owes trillions of dollars to China, the U.S. military often appears powerless to defeat enemies abroad, and the fight against terrorism threatens to undermine civil liberties and privacy rights at home. Washington is paralyzed by bitter partisanship, students are falling behind their international peers in academic skills, and the nation's middle class is no longer the world's most affluent. Is America in decline? The charge isn't new. The Soviets' launch of Sputnik in the 1950s, the energy crisis in the 1970s, and the 9/11 attacks in 2001 all led to cries that America was in trouble-but the nation bounced back. Times might indeed be tough today, but America is recovering from the Great Recession faster than almost any other major country, an energy boom could add billions to the nation's wealth, and the United States still remains a leader in technological innovation and possesses the world's strongest military. But are the declinists right? Are the nation's best days over, or should the world still bet on America?
