I have just started on "Rise and fall of great nations" by Paul Kennedy.

When I read it I just can't stop thinking on America.

Losing production compared to the rest of the world -> Increased Military spending -> war over resources

And China
Increased production compared to the rest of the world -> aquirance of resources

Any one else who have read it?
