October 2008
Forbes Asia;10/13/2008, Vol. 4 Issue 17, p5
The author reflects on the crisis in capitalism and the decline of American influence in the world. He muses on the lifestyle in the U.S. that is likely to change though he believes in the American system's adaptability and resiliency despite the odds. He comments that the 2008 financial crisis would be a good reason to reopen the Doha round to allow other nations to play a bigger part in the world economy previously dominated and influenced by the U.S.
