Reports of the Anglosphere's Death are Greatly Exaggerated watch

    • Thread Starter

    Very interesting article from City Journal showing that the Anglosphere (United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand) is still punching massively above its weight in all categories; technologically, militarily, culturally, economically, financially and linguistically.

    It even produces some interesting figures on future age demographics and how Asia, counterintuitively, is actually likely to have more challenging issues relating to the aging of its population.

    Whilst I can't speak much for Canada and New Zealand the US arguably Britain (could go either way right now) and Australia are hardly in decline. Granted there is going to be a scale back of power especially for America, the days where they could act as the world police and were the lone super power are gone but I doubt we are going to see a slide into complete irrelevance and poverty that some are predicting for the Western world in general.

    The Anglosphere can't be considered one homogenous block.

    The US/Canada, UK/Ireland, Australia/New Zealand make up their own smaller blocks but otherwise have very little interaction with each other.

    The UK has more interaction with the EU than it does with any other nation in the Anglosphere.
