Decline of the Superpowers

Winners and Losers in Today's Global Economy

by James Laxer


Recent years have seen extensive change in the global economy as the United States' economic strength has declined while nations such as Japan and West Germany have grown dramatically.
In Decline of the Superpowers, James Laxer considers the different patterns of economic and political development among nine of the world's strongest economies that have given rise to these changes. Countries covered are the United States, Britain, Japan, West Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Canada, and the Soviet Union.
He then discusses the trends of the future for the major industrialized powers.
