WHAT WILL THE CURRENT GLOBAL TRADE AND FINANCIAL SYSTEM LOOK LIKE? AND WHAT WILL BE THE ROLES OF THE USA, CHINA, JAPAN, AND THE EU IN IT?

Today's Buggy Topic

The subject-heading captures the current bugged-out analysis --- which can be found at Economist's View, the admirable economic web-site run  by Professor Mark Thoma of the University of Oregon --- as effectively as any other would . . . the prof bug ruminations set out, as usual, with a lot of hard evidence, but this time entailing a fair amount of speculation.  No help for it.  Can't talk about the future --- say, the next decade ahead of us --- without speculating on several different trends at work: economic, financial, political, and diplomatic. 

Click here for the thread, including the stimulating article that starts it  and later prof bug's long spun-out analysis.   (Please keep in mind.  Prof bug bangs out those linked commentaries in sustained bursts of breakneck speed, with no time left --- other than running a spelling check --- to review the syntax.)
