What country do you think is going to be the next world leader? At the moment, I believe the U.S. is the world's leader (politically,, econmically, and other wise), but some estimate they can be surpassed in power by in little time as 2030. That's where the BRICS nations come in. They are still developing, newly industrialized countries, but their growing population and productivity may far surpass the U.S. Here is a link to learn more about each individual country: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F03yzqR4gYI.
I thought China would be the next world leader with their high population and growing GDP, but with the President now becoming closer to a dictator, the western world may isolate it for their distatse in that type of government. What do you think?
