Another non-environmental wonder

Columnist Schumpeter of the Economist thinks this is a good way to sum up the influence of America on the world over the past few decades:

"America has been the world’s most important growth machine since the second world war...The machine was good for the world as well as America—it helped spread the gospel of capitalism and transform the American dream into a global dream."

In the words of novelist William Gass, "if Americans ever had a dictator they would call him Coach."
