Rumors of the Death of the West Have Been GREATLY Exaggerated…

Great reading this morning from City Journal:

It’s indisputable that the Anglosphere no longer enjoys the overwhelming global dominance that it once had. What was once a globe-spanning empire is now best understood as a union of language, culture, and shared values. Yet what declinists overlook is that despite its current economic problems, the Anglosphere’s fundamental assets—economic, political, demographic, and cultural—are likely to drive its continued global leadership. The Anglosphere future is brighter than commonly believed.

Read it all. Or skim it for some pretty powerful graphs demonstrating the combined power of the Anglosphere plus India.

The ghost of the British Empire haunts us still, for better or worse.
