Asia has a rich history and culture that has provided a framework that native Asians are rooted in. Tragically, the left has disrupted much of those traditional folkways in several nations as did European imperialism. The danger is that global capitalism might further undermine those social bonds and genteel values that characterize the culture of East Asia.

Another source of danger for Asia is the loss of family cohesion as incomes rise. The tight family structure provides a valuable means of transmission for their culture as these intimate relations meet their emotional and sexual needs in a responsible and harmonizing way.

Would you agree with the Wiki entries that the outlook for shale is not quite so rosy nor cheap?

Let us not mistake government for governance.

About the issue of medical care in the US: perhaps the time has come to consider the cost of attending medical schools. Graduating with large amounts of student debts seems to force young doctors into considering a career focused on earning, rather than service delivery. There is competition between health-care institutions, rather than co-operation. Atul Gawande's recent article in the New Yorker magazine has an interesting study of the differences between the most expensive county in the country in terms of per-capita expenditure on health care service delivery and entire states that have less than a third of the same cost. His study seems to indicate that it is the attitude among doctors that influence how costly health care ends up being for a citizen, rather than anything else.

Perhaps it is also time to re-evaluate the meaning of good health in the American context.

Personally, I believe that North America will regain the leadership position, and is in fact set to become more powerful than it was during the 20th Century.

1. The focus on population is puzzling and off base - it doesn't matter, from an "influence" perspective, if a region has far more people if it's poor.
2. The story is also about the relative decline of the US. The US will go down partly because its people lack the discipline to study and save, a lack which cannot be made up by the government.
