American Decline

Sullen Sunday at Pacific Standard magazine.

Theme: Investigating the relationship between changing US migration patterns and American hegemony.

Subject Article: "Risk-Averse Culture Infects U.S. Workers, Entrepreneurs."

Other Links: 1. "Conference on World Affairs."
2. "The Day Before Yesterday: Reconsidering America's Past, Rediscovering the Present."
3. "Sunburn Belt: Legacy Costs Of Sprawl."
4. "The Heart of Demographic Doom."

Postscript: I'm not as glum as the Wall Street Journal. The talent most closely associated with the current economic epoch is still moving around and innovating. I don't see decline. I see more people economically marginalized, stuck in places where the economy isn't diverging.
