1) the US will continue to grow
(it's actually growing at a rate of3% per year now)
and EU will become more unified and will play a bigger role in the future. it will be more or less a multi-polar system in which several blocks will compete: US/allies, China, EU, Russia, etc.
2) We are a land country throughout history while the recent powers in the past 300-400 years have all been naval powers: UK, Spain, Dutch, US, etc. This is also true for CCCP. Even in its heyday, CCCP could not rival the US in terms of geographic advantage, such as military bases and allies around the world.
