would you say that America's place in world affairs reflects its economic position. Explain your answer.
:: The United States reputation is built on many things, not just economic power. We are technically "in debt" to China for billions of dollars, but we are more influential because of our character diplomacy, educational progress, and founding member of status.
is my answer okay? can anybody add to it?
In the last several years, the U.S. has lost the respect of most of the world because of our lack of diplomacy and our immoral character in starting a preemptive war. Our students rank lower than those of many other industrialized country.
The only conclusion is that our place in world affairs is because of our economic and military power. Many individuals still admire our freedoms, even if they don't respect our government. I hope this changes in the next few years.
thank you =]
