"What saves a man is to take a step.
Then another step." ~ C. S. Lewis
This doesn’t imply that wealthy countries (like the US) are getting poorer, but that poorer countries are getting richer. If you care at all about the world’s poor, this is a wonderful thing.

This is a great development but it also means that the "wealthy" countries like the US will see their relative influence in the world diminish.The US is going to have to learn to use "soft power" more and more, and diplomacy will be even more crucial.
