A glimpse of things to come

WASHINGTON, Nov 20 (Reuters) - U.S. economic and political clout will decline over the next two decades and the world will be more dangerous, with food and water scarce and advanced weapons plentiful, U.S. spy agencies projected on Thursday.

The report predicts that the dollar will lose its place as the premier currency of the world, and

Global wealth [will shift] from the developed West to the energy-rich Gulf States and Russia, and to Asia, the rising center of manufacturing and some service industries.

Meanwhile (my prediction), we will remain slaves to our houses, cars, and credit card bills. I'm constantly berated for saying that the real opportunities for the next several years lie well outside the States, but the evidence is finally mounting. Wishing it weren't true is not going to stop it, friends and neighbors. I just wish I was still in a position to capitalize on it, or that I can find a way to recapture that chance.
