Everyone is saying this century will be an Asian century. Most of the big economies will be Asia now. There will be other nations with economic clout but the majority will be in Asia. So if this is the case who do you think the 22nd century power will be? Will Africa rise up to be the new one? Will North America rebound? Or will we be totally shocked by something like Central America? It is quite interesting how the pendulum swings. Its impossible to know but its fun to predict.
