Rumors About the USA's Death Strongly Exaggerated

A quote from Kjetil Storesletten in Aftenposten, 1 November 2008

The rumors about the USA's death are strongly exaggerated. In two years time, everything will continue just like before. There are many countries that were supposed to take over for the USA. This time it's China. We'll see when they can't just copy any more, but will have to start to create things on their own.
