Emmanuel Daniel discusses the idea of East versus West and it being a Western construct, we’re in a multipolar world. He argues the U.S. is a dysfunctional state because it spearheads the development of new systems of governance and suffers the consequences, but that the rest of the world shares in those benefits. He explains how China became successful and how the “reset” of the Cultural Revolution played a role. He doesn’t feel the U.S is declining but rather pushing ahead into the networked world. Just like the U.S. had to reinvent itself in 1971 by closing the gold window, he feels we are at another critical juncture where the U.S. will pull yet another trick and take the world into a digital economy (e.g. CBDCs, metaverse).
