HEGE/SOFT POWER 3 DDI 08 – CO/JK Crystal Xia Soft Power High Soft power is high and increasing. Michael Fullilove , Director of the Global Issues Program at the Lowy Institute for International Policy, 7-8- 08 , “Smart Power, Exaggerating America’s decline”, http://www.abc.net.au/news/ stories/2008/07/08/2297206.htm, [CXia] In terms of soft power , too - the ability to get others to want what you want - the case for America's decline is easily overstated . America retains its hold on the world's imagination. For most non-Americans around the world, America's politics are, at some level, our politics as well. Why is the world so interested? America's bulk is only part of the answer. Ultimately, it is not really the size of the US economy that draws our attention. It is not even America's blue-water navy or its new bunker- busting munitions. Rather, it is the idea of America which continues to fascinate: a superpower that is open, democratic, meritocratic and optimistic ; a country that is the cockpit of global culture; a polity in which all candidates for public office, whether or not they are a Clinton, seem to come from a place called Hope. It's worth noting that the declinist canon has emerged at the nadir of the Bush years; America's soft power account will look much healthier the instant the next president is inaugurated . The US’s absorption of other nations allows for soft power to remain high. Fareed Zakaria , PhD in political science from Harvard, board @ Yale, Council for Foreign Relations, 5-12- 08, “The Post-American World” http://www.fareedzakaria.com/articles/new sweek/051208.html [CXia] The United States is currently ranked as the globe's most competitive economy by the World Economic Forum. It remains dominant in many industries of the future like nanotechnology, biotechnology, and dozens of smaller high-tech fields.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
