Policy-makers in the advanced nations need to speak truth to their populations. Can America accept that it will need to share world leadership, that it might “no longer be the only military political economic superpower in the world” (as Bill Clinton said at Yale in 2003, reported in Kishore Mahbubani’s The Great Convergence)?
