“Post-American world is a much richer world”

Although the US still has economic and political dominance in the world, it’s gradually ceding its position to other countries, says Ind ian-American journalist and author Fareed Rafiq Zakaria.

“The post-American world is a world that is moving away from total American dominance. But it is not moving towards multi-polarity because you still have a situation where the United States is significantly more powerful than any other country in the world,” Zakaria told RT.

“You still have a world in which the United States remains the single superpower – but economic growth, industrial might, financial power, even cultural power are all shifting… What we are moving to is a world where power is more shared and there are more centers of power,” he concluded.
