Why the US Is Losing Its Preeminence

The Chicken Little position is well stated in this NYTimes article on a Chinese woman teaching Chinese to teens in Lawton, OK.   Interesting contrasts in culture:
“They party, they drink, they date,” [the teacher] added. “In China, we study and study and study.”
Note: I'm not much bothered by the prospect.  The only thing I can be sure of is the contrast will be different in 30 years.
