Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... the US adopts a crash program of Sustainable Energy Independence. No longer needing to look at Africa as a potential source of oil, it is free to pursue a policy of balanced trade of finished goods for finished goods, leading to an a surge in high value added agrarian and urban products from Africa, released from Thirlwall's Law constraints.

Latin America is drawn into the system, with Mercosur in the South and a new Caribbean Basin trade zone including Mexico through Venezuela, the Spanish Caribbean, CARICOM, and spilling over into Peru and Ecuador breaking through the old national market constraints that plagued Latin American domestic industrial development.

China, continuing in technological chase mode, adopts as much of the technology that the US makes available, and the US sees no reason to sit on any of it, given that the more sustainable energy resources tapped by more nations means more energy resources for all.

And, uhhh ... Europe, North Africa, Russia and India also do stuffs thats are teh bomb.

Sweetness and light, except the part of wresting the American economy from the cold dead fingers of the Military Industrial Complex and putting it onto the task of serving the interests of the American people. That parts a bit messy, but I'll just close a curtain on that part.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
