like to claim as my own, it is the comparative theory of superpower collapse.
For now, it remains just a theory, although it is currently being quite

shortfall in the production of crude oil, a worsening
foreign trade deficit,
a runaway military budget, and
ballooning foreign debt.

of ingredients "The Superpower Collapse Soup."

this theory since about 1995, when it occurred to me that the
US is retracing the same
trajectory as the USSR.
