It's very possible. US is pretty much a superpower now...

There's this Canadian comic called "Captain Canuck" that was written in the 1900's, and it predicted that in 1990 Canada would become a world superpower.


I rofled really hard.

With the rise of the chinese and indian population and the United States reign of terror over the world, I would expect a collapse.

Another Stereotypical Euro American thinking his country is hot s***.When things are going horribly wrong in the middle east thanks to a certain country. The American govt can't it take care of it's own, let alone have a military that can go into other countries and start meddling around. The American Dollar is weakening to the Euro everyday it seems. In five years i can envision Americans heading up to Canada for a better life like Mexican enter the US for a better life. So as far as being a superpower goes is very questionable, and the question of it's credibility is VERY much in question.

and i think why the American Dollar value is dropping because the government want it to. so they dont have to pay back the exact amount of debt they owe.

superpower - a state powerful enough to influence events throughout the world. A country that has the capacity to project dominating power and influence anywhere in the world.

I think in 50 years the US will still be the most powerful country in the world.
for those that say China or some country will become the next superpower in 50 years, they are stupid, no country have the advance technology, economy, power that come close to the United States.

Share your thoughts on this


^^^^ this is what people say when ignorance its at its peak in 50 years we probably wont have a earth to live with if USa keeep like it is global warming contributer and btw the tecnology and stuff i not USa , is japan germany and russia USa just buy it from all of em , when u buy something in USa and u look it under it says made in taiwan , made in china , so what technology are u talking about , and it think the super power if we still have a world to live in will be the european nation together not USA altho USa could be still powerfull but not as it is now ....

Even though the U.S. has a stable economy and a powerful military, it has lost its credibility. U.S.'s power means nothing if the world or even its citizens lost their trust in their leader.

I am neither European nor American, and I believe that yes, America will be a superpower for many years to come. Remember we are talking "a" superpower, not "the" superpower. For as long as I can remember they have been probably the most influential country in the world. New superpowers like those mentioned by other people above will almost certainly eventuate too (in particular a united Europe). Btw, don't forget to keep an eye out for Australia. We are growing stronger by the day!

India and China are said to be potential powerhouses in the future, due to the large population and relatively cheap production costs there.

It's true, that America has a powerful Military and what not, but just like in psychology, those who are portrayed as the Buff/bully type are usually the insecure type. In the American media you hear things like "lose weight your fat" "terrorist will kill us" "don't eat broccoli, you might get ecol i" and the list goes own, i once heard that America is the only country that has anorexics.
