The myth of America’s decline (2024) edit

"The myth of America’s decline: As China struggles and the EU stagnates, the US continues to thrive – even despite its dreadful leaders", Spiked (8 March 2024)
  • Europe’s once formidable industrial base has eroded in large part due to the ever rising burden of regulation. Germany’s economy, the most powerful economy in the EU, is barely the size of that of California.
  • Hating America may still be fashionable, particularly in Europe. But it is also fundamentally shortsighted, unless one wants to side with Putin’s Russia, the Chinese Communist Party, or the Islamist fanatics of the Middle East.
