The State Of The Anglosphere

If anything, I think they authors understate the percentage of world GDP the Anglosphere has, but that’s really quibbling:

It’s indisputable that the Anglosphere no longer enjoys the overwhelming global dominance that it once had. What was once a globe-spanning empire is now best understood as a union of language, culture, and shared values. Yet what declinists overlook is that despite its current economic problems, the Anglosphere’s fundamental assets—economic, political, demographic, and cultural—are likely to drive its continued global leadership. The Anglosphere future is brighter than commonly believed.

Bismarck, when asked what the most important fact in modern history was, replied, “that the North Americans speak English.”  I think the smart set is already saying that about India.
