The Accidental Superpower : The Next Generation of American Preeminence and the Coming Global Disaster Paperback / softback

Description

In the bestselling tradition of The World Is Flat and The Next 100 Years comes a contrarian and eye-opening assessment of American power. In THE ACCIDENTAL SUPERPOWER, international strategist Peter Zeihan examines how the hard rules of geography are eroding the American commitment to free trade; how much of the planet is aging into a mass retirement that will enervate capital supplies; and how it is the ever-ravenous American economy that is rapidly approaching energy independence.

Combined, these factors are overturning the global system and ushering in a new (dis)order.

For most, that is a disaster-in-waiting, but not for the Americans.

The shale revolution allows Americans to sidestep a dangerous energy market.

Only the U.S. boasts a youth population large enough to escape the sucking maw of global aging.

Geography will matter more than ever in a de-globalizing world, and America's geography is simply sublime.
