The End of America?

6 Dec 2010 – U Wisconsin history professor Alfred W. McCoy presents 4 scenarios whereby the US loses to China by 2025.

22 Jan 2010 – STRATFOR (?) predicts Chinese economic collapse in 2010 and continued US dominance throughout the decade.

29 Dec 2008 – Russian diplomatic scholar Igor Panarin predicted that by 2011 the US would dissolve ala his native Soviet Union.  Apparently he came up with the date in 1998 and stood behind it at least into early 2009.

This is an interesting chart.  Igor’s on there.  Two on there aren’t really scholars so I wouldn’t count them: Moriarty sells gold, and Celente, founder of The Trends Research Institute… well here’s what he has to say (from his website): Gerald Celente, a Close Combat practitioner and black belt trainer, well understands the importance of proacting rather than reacting: “The first rule of Close Combat is to attack the attacker. Action is faster than reaction. The same holds true for the future. You know the future is coming … attack it before it attacks you.” Um, ok….
