Other Countries tend to feel, if it affects it's own citizens so be it, they might view it as crazy or whatever they see it as, but when it begins to affect their Country and their lifestyles, then it's on a whole other level. I do feel that the way we were once viewed in the world is coming to an end. I never wanted to live during the time of the crash of the Roman Empire, but guess I won that lottery.

When I think back to how things were in the 60's and 70's, and then to the 80's onward, growing more crazy all the time. I just shake my head to think, although there were improvements to make in many areas in the 60's and 70's but the people were pushing for those changes. I knew we were walking in the correct direction to do these improvements, great hope was for the this. It is more than sad it is darn right tragic to see and live through.

I agree with a De-Americanized world, but China isn't a country I think anyone should follow blindly until they improve their record towards Tibet, the environment, and dissidents....

Too late, the tea bags and their wealthy sponsors have already de-Ameircanized the United States.
This is an interesting paragraph and an intellectual of this level would barely get the time of day here. (From the article)
“If we are really rational, I cannot imagine why someone would dare to bear this kind of responsibility because any real default will have a huge impact not only on the U.S. and China, but on the global economy,” said Professor Zhao Longkai, a dean at the Guanghua School of Management at Beijing University. “It’s hard for us to imagine anyone can be that crazy to push the limit to that level.”

Thanks for the article and your comment Kit "Too late, the tea bags and their wealthy sponsors have already de-Ameircanized the United States". Just finished watching Dateline on SBS Australia had several American speakers from various fields discussing the "Debt Ceiling Deadline" and they all repeated the same thing America will not default, this is the Republicans playing their game..this is what they set out to do..oppose everything..I got the feeling that they were more worried if America didn't..none would look beyond the ramifications if it does...uncharted waters. Just checked our sharemarket...still steady with small increase..China can most likely carry that debt..that it holds on behalf of the US..irrespective of what happens Thursday the world will never see America the same....but the question on everyone lips at the moment is are they really that crazy or are they really that broke.......they aren't worrying about the money so much at all..I think most of the world learnt it's lessen in 2008....In Australia most economists have said the worst that will happen is interest go up...and that will be a huge bonus for most...
