    With dwindling resources and increasing populations, I think the country that wins the space race will be the next super power. The ones with huge out of control populations like China and India will, I think, fall flat on their faces at some point if something isn't done to curb population growth. Either you have Malthus Theory kicking in and you have a devastated population due to famine and other resource depletion factors or you have a massive disease outbreak due to poor living conditions in overpopulated areas. I can only see one country being a Super Power, the US. There are others that will have massive economic growth, but I don't see them taking the next step towards super power status. In the next 50-100 years I see the pecking order like this:

    1) USA: top of the pile due to military and space resources and relatively small population, but influentially reduced due to other countries having similar economic power.
    2) Brazil: massive resources and small population. Will excel in services and energy sectors.
    3) Germany: Excellent in export sectors and very efficient in their resource management.

    After we get done here in the US shredding the Constitution and printing enough money out of thin air that it becomes worthless, China and other countries we've borrowed from will pick the carcass clean.

    Meanwhile, the downfall of the dollar will in turn trash the rest of the world economy, giving excuse to those who want one world government and one world currency.

    I'm guessing Rome, but the head of this "new world order" could technically be anywhere. It remains to be seen how far the old establishments will go and how many people they will vaporize before losing their power.

    On behalf of the American people, who have been systematically dumbed down to not see the writing on the wall (we are all too busy watching reality shows on tv whilst eating ourselves into a self inflicted obesity), I apologize for what is about to transpire. We've brought it on ourselves, may our children forgive us.

    Alternatively, the people wake up, throw the bums out, elect Ron Paul as president and we stop trying to be the great american empire and mind our own business and pay our bills.

    Either way, the US is not going to be on top much longer, that much is certain.

    There really is an anglo american empire, then there is one europe.

    America does not exist by itself.

    The question really is not relevant to todays world.

    You see countries operating in blocks, no one can be alone.

    Blocks can be influenced by economic power. I think people should also look closely at what is a Super Power really.

    Ha ha ha....little crazy but bad because you are praising your own country.

    Not-related to topic is that your profile's background picture (of girl) is fabulous.

    How America doesn't exist? How question is irrelevant?

    You can see:

    America can impose ban on any Country and they do.
    America is doing war against terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
    America sends their people on Moon and space etc.
    America is against of becoming countries a Nuclear power like Iran and Korea etc.
    Many English countries do what America says.
    America has most satellite in sky.
    America has the most powerful weapons all over the World.

    Just think little about this please.

    China for sure, their economy is growing on a good speed.
    So was Japan, but past events there made it go down.

    Its this kinda arrogance thats the cause of the problem

    The numbers you have to look at are Education, Health Care and Poverty...where does the US rank on these? (far from first place)

    It all depends on where you were from before you went to the US. If you come from a country with an atrocious standard of living then anything else will look worlds better. I really can't see there being mass migration to China like with the US. When you have a policy of dumping people in labour camps when they don't like your policies it kinda dampens enthusiasm. :p

    Pakistan is the only superpower as it is one country that can bilk the present superpower of billions and this has been going on for decades, and will go on as long as Pakistan's major export is terrorism.

    Also France, a country which had its good days some centuries ago, but is still on the UNSC. Shockingly, it may have had the most present and ex-IMF chiefs. Different matter that though European scandals are more carnal in nature than Asian scandals which involve money matters. If one country that needs to be kicked out (no offence to fellow Frenchman) of UNSC and IMF, it is France. Replace it with Japan (for always giving us products that last and last).
