The new gloomsayers

America is an empire. Call it what you will, but it is an empire and we should learn to manage it. This is the point made in the cover articles in this months Atlantic Monthly. If Rome’s empire entailed the capture of territory, our’s is in the spread of freedom, capitalism and democracy. We should get good at managing this spread.

It sounds like Fareed Zakaria’s book seems to hint at how to manage our empire.

To manage anything, we need to know how to measure it. What is empire? What are its components? How do you measure its ascent or decline?
