With the demise of the Soviet Union, the United States has become the one remaining superpower. Their GDP has surpassed 10.5 trillion dollars per year, dwarfing all other countries. Their annual military budget roughly equals all other countries in the world combined. They clearly have more power and influence than any nation in history. However, while this is probably good for them, is it good for the rest of the world? Having this much power creates a lot of responsibility. Is the world better off with the US as the sole superpower or would the world be better off with multiple world powers such as was the case during the Cold War, when the U.S. and Soviet Union shared superpower status? Coming to reality, there is no one to really put the US in place!
