Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
When considering the U.S., it is easy to forget that the New World still has a low enough population density and enough unexploited resources that both Noth and South America can run good economies in isolation.

No, the Americas on their own are not enough ... Southern to Central Africa is also required to have a full complement of strategic resources.

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