    uh
    cause he enjoys reading?
    .
    In this, his third major book, Zakaria begins:

    “This is a book not about the decline of America but rather about the rise of everyone else.” He writes:

    We are now living through the third great power shift of the modern era. It could be called “the rise of the rest” … Over the past few decades, countries all over the world have been experiencing rates of economic growth that were once unthinkable.

    Zakaria is optimistic. Hundreds of millions are still living “in desperate poverty,” but people living on one dollar a day has declined “from 40 percent in 1981 to 18 percent in 2004, and is estimated to fall to 12 percent by 2015.” Zakaria sees poverty declining in the world in general. Between 2000 and 2007, he writes, the world economy grew at “its fastest pace in nearly four decades.” Income rose “at a faster rate (3.2 percent) than in any other period in history.” And this occurred despite all of the turmoil.

    Zakaria believes that Americans will benefit from this overall growth, what he describes as a bigger pie. He is aware of problems, environmental and otherwise. Zakaria writes (before the crisis of September 200 of "low interest rates and cheap credit [causing] people to act foolishly or greedily, inflating bubbles in technology stocks, housing, subprime mortgages, or emerging market equities – bubbles that eventually pop.

    Zakaria focuses on the question of U.S. power to control. The power shift he describes as countries choosing to forge ties with one another rather than following the U.S. or the “West” as a center of power – a shift away from “unipolarity.” He predicts that no country “will get its way entirely.” He writes:

    This does not mean becoming resigned to chaos or aggression; far from it. But the only way for the United States to deter rogue actions will be to create a broad durable coalition against them. And that will be possible only if Washington can show that it is willing to allow other countries to become stakeholders in the new order. In today’s international order, progress means compromise. No country will get its way entirely. (p. 44)

    Zakaria describes the United States as having “enormous strengths” and writes that “the new world will not throw up a new superpower but rather a diversity of forces that Washington can navigate and even help direct.”

    But he describes U.S. officials as preaching to foreigners rather than engaging in conversation. He quotes:

    When we meet with American officials, they talk and we listen – we rarely disagree or speak frankly because they simply can’t take it in. They simply repeat the American position, like the tourist who thinks he just needs to speak louder and slower and then we will all understand.

      I can understand why Barney writes for his masters that this book is supposed to be bad; as it calls for the US cooperating instead of bombing the entire world to stay ‘superior.’ Obama is fostering international coalitions, That’s the opposite of the old ‘divide and conquer’ of neocons. Barney is a preacher for unilateral military invasions.
      .
      “way for the United States to deter rogue actions will be to create a broad durable coalition against them. And that will be possible only if Washington can show that it is willing to allow other countries to become stakeholders in the new order. In today’s international order, progress means compromise.

        unless of course youre attempting to force against wills
        and what kind of way is that to have the world run?

    Good to see him reading. This is what Amazon says about the book:

    “Zakaria . . . may have more intellectual range and insights than any other public thinker in the West.” —Boston Sunday Globe

    “This is not a book about the decline of America, but rather about the rise of everyone else.” So begins Fareed Zakaria’s blockbusting bestseller on the United States in the twenty-first century. How can Americans understand this rapidly changing international climate, and how might the nation continue to thrive in a truly global era? Zakaria answers these questions with his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination.

    This will be the next book on my reading list.

    Yes, it is a big plot. Obama is reading the book because he wants to be known as the man who destroyed America….yeah right.

    July 06, 2013

      He will be know as the man who destroyed America as we know it..

        That title goes to GWB, who took away most of our freedoms with the Patriot Act and Homeland Secuirty. The best title Obama can get is the guy who didn’t destroy the Patriot Act and Homeland Security. But let’s face it, both of those fall under Congress’s power.

        July 07, 2013
        1. Brn2bfree

          Let’s face it…. all you do is blame Bush.
          Due to the fact that Obama has done what Bush started and took it to the next level…leaves Bush mute…
          I can’t believe your thinking.. you’re in a way saying.. … ‘if they hadn’t started it… they wouldn’t be doing this’.. How do you expect people to buy this shit …. and to take you serious?

          July 07, 2013
          1. jillsthoughts

            Al Gore wouldn’t have set up the Patriot Act and Homeland Security. So yes, this came from the heads of Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld. They are to blame. Now explain how Obama has taken it to the next level.

              NSA, IRS, DOJ… Obama’s continuation of GWB policies. Yep, I don’t like it, and I didn’t like it when GWB was involved either. As I’ve said before, Obama has said he would bring transparency to Washington, and I do believe that is being accomplished.

          Obama passed this law… we call Obamacare… He couldn’t meet the deadline created by his administration…. so without Congress, now he wants to give big business a break til 2015. After the midterm elections…. A wanna be dick-tator would do something like that. You know.. decide who should get the mandate and who shouldn’t.

            Hell, the big corporations were ready for it. Small businesses benefit from the postponement the most.

            July 10, 2013
          2. jillsthoughts

            He met the deadline. Some of the businesses who were supposed to comply were lied to by their republican representatives who told them, falsely, that the law would be repealed. They tried 37 times, but have failed. They have wasted our tax payer dollars trying and failing to repeal the law.
            .
            Who is really at fault here? Either the lying republicans or the businesses who thought to avoid the law. All the honest business people will be ready come the original deadline. Deadbeat, lazy business people…

        No one is asking you to actually READ the book, Brn. Just read the book jacket to find out what it means. So funny how well “judge a book by its cover” fits with this description.

        I really can’t believe you are continuing to argue this point. Go see my post, “Define Stupid.”

    This was posted on FB years ago. Another attempt to smear. Did you see the one about Obama authorizing a postage stamp to commemorate the Muslim holiday Eid? That was laughable too. George W Bush was the first president to authorize that postage stamp. They know they can get Americans riled up by posting this tripe, because so many people read or hear the lies and spread them as truth. Remember, if it’s on the internet, it must be true!

        Ok.. another Obama lover…
        Reading a book isn’t a treasonous act… just making my point that Obama is trying to change America as it is.. he wants to turn it into a third world socialist country… He gets his ideas from books like this and ‘Dreams of my father’ and people like Ayers…Audacity of hope… … He did have communists in his cabinet… He’s into redistrabution of income….socialism on steroids…. Obama is a black theologist. “White man’s Greed versus a World in Need” Quote By Obama and His Rev
        .
        . Low information people don’t see this or care about this because they want government help and they think Obama can deliver. His goal is to get as many people depending on government so that they will always vote Democrat.. he has accomplished his goal with the last elections.

        July 07, 2013
        1. Shadows

          Actually, no. I’ve been furious with the Obama administration for many of its actions; that said, I can honestly say I’m more satisfied with his administration than I would have under McCain or Romney/Santorum/Perry/etc…
          Obama is trying to change America, for the the better. He’s reading a book detailing the rise of other countries that achieved democracy and run with it while we haven’t adapted. Thanks to the former administration we have a ton of debt and we definitely need to adapt for the future. And his book focusing on race relations is a good thing; America has a unique understanding of race and in this colorblind racist society it would do everyone good to keep in mind the way race relations play into policies that we follow.
          Guess what? Since the 1960’s the wealthiest have only gotten wealthier while stepping on the backs of the working class by keeping minimum wages the same despite inflation. And that quote (though I’m not sure he said it) isn’t inaccurate, though it’s a little incomplete: Heterosexual rich White man’s Greed versus a world in need.

          You can’t call people low information when you can’t even research a book or understand the benefits of looking into race relations and intersectionality when in politics. But again I’ll say this, guess which states take the most government help? Guess which states have the highest teen pregnancy rates? The bible chain of conservative states, the same backwards people who have always been backwards not the liberals. So its the conservatives that are low information, not liberals. His goal as you said is a redistribution of income to achieve equality and provide avenues out of poverty. If people recognize a politician is backing them then I wouldn’t blame them for being open to a party.

      Um, how often can we tell you to go look the book up? Do you get paid per response? Because your ability to not be sensible makes you look stupid. I can only hope you’re making money off these posts. Otherwise, you are doing your party a disservice.

      1. Brn2bfree

        No I don’t get paid for this… I just like messing with liberals. ..exposing their lies. I can’t stand liars. Trying to change hearts and minds.. I was a wrech like you… undone, living in a world of sin… I changed some.. still living in a world of sin but see things differently.
        .
        Btw, my party? I don’t care what I do to it/them . I’m more of a tea party person… yeah an old white guy…. I don’t care for the establishment Republicans running the show.. people like Mclaim and Gramnesty.. Bohner..
        LIke I said before, they are now irrelevant… for they can’t compete with the Santa Claus party. Only events will change things from now on.. What I see is that they will soon run out of other peoples money then… shit will hit the fan.

        July 07, 2013
        1. jillsthoughts

          LOL, “exposing their lies.” You have yet to expose any lies of the liberals. But we continue to expose the lies you bring here, so thank you for that. You actually provide a public service.
          .
          I’m sorry that you lived in a world of sin, but that was of your own making. I would like to think as an “old white guy” you are not still blaming others for your actions, but like the rest of the Tea Party crowd, that seems to be the trend. As for me, I have never lived in a world of sin, and I really can’t relate to what you say. But I do know that education is the key to fixing the mess we live in, and that is why I will spend the time I do researching your lies. It’s worth it. at the end of the day, more people turn away from republicans and the near extinct Tea Party movement than join them.
          .
          Sorry, brn, but you are going the same way as the dinosaur. You know, the ones that lived during Jesus’ life time…

            Let’s clear that up… I don’t like communists you know that… .. If I used Putin…it was to make a case against Obama and what he’s doing… Maybe its that the Russians are in some ways embracing capitalism and they are showing growth… like China. These communist and socialist countries are embracing bits of capitalism while we are making strides towards socialism/communism.

            Well, Zealots like brn have a very short memory! LOL!!!
            But I do clearly remember that post but it could also have been the goofball who posted it and not brn.
            Either case, it is rather easy to confused those two zealots… LOL!!!

            Exactly, wireless. Brn has no memory. Obvious to all of us, by his own post comments.

      The subject of the book could very well have been how the rest of the world is improving in baseball and the North Americans (we have to include the Blue Jays, of course) may soon no longer have the best teams, so there would have to be a real World Series to determine the best baseball team on the planet, but you wouldn’t have known that, because you didn’t research it.

      Post means after, but after what? You can’t know that just from the title.
      .
      I think you imply because you know what it means to assume. Either way, the result is the same.

      The Post-American World is about countries surpassing our economy
      ~~~~~~~~~~~
      That’s what you don’t get Mr. Robama…. that Obama’s policies are making us just another third world country.. other countries will be surpassing our economy. That’s the plan man. We’re not going to be the America we used to be… opportunities for our grandchildren won’t be there….. Wake up.. We are no longer going to be that ‘beacon’ on the hill. People won’t be able to trust us… depend on us….

        I think people who constantly blame everything on ‘Bush’…. has a mental disorder.

    For the low information voters…..

    “Post” America means the world after America!

    If you don’t have borders… you don’t have America…. He is on his way to do just that… You gays don’t see what’s being implied with all these things that are taking place.
