Among Kindleberger's theories is his belief that nations go through life cycles that are roughly analogous to those of individuals. The writer discusses this theory by examining the health of the world as an indicator of its economic wellbeing, and argues that Kindleberger's theories are sound. He also argues that the U.S. is in decline. There are 4 sources listed in the bibliography.
