    If you do not beleive that we have been living in a era of western hegemony your opinion on this topic is unneeded and if offered will earn you a place on the ignore list for the life of the thread if not longer.

    I know its on the decline. But its not necessarily a bad thing. Being so forceful on others makes us look bad. I am looking forward to the new west and hopefully it will be less pushy and more laid back.

    I will wait until 2015-2016 to give you my view.

    Think of it as a long term bump :O)

    I voted for 3rd option and China stands as synonym for Pacific-Asia.
    It will be Pacific-Asia which holds most debt from other regions.
    China already lends more money then the WorldBank.

    A closed mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    Wait....I am going to take that opinion back.

    It's certainly declining. Since the US is funding China's military machine at an alarming rate, they'll probably take over as the world's superpower eventually.

    BERLIN (AFP) – Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives lost power in their German heartland after nearly six decades, initial poll results showed Sunday, with the Greens likely to lead their first state government.
    Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) have ruled Baden-Wuerttemberg since 1953, but anger over her nuclear policy in light of the Japan crisis as well as decisions on Libya and the euro drove away voters in the run-up to the poll.
    The anti-nuclear Greens claimed about 24 percent of the vote -- about 12 point higher than five years ago -- and were likely to form a coalition with the Social Democrats, who garnered about 23 percent in the rich state.
