CAMBRIDGE FORECAST GROUP ESSAY:

THE NEW AMERICAN CENTURY VIA PALESTINE

Political economists who want to periodize human events talk about an American century that goes from 1941 to 2008.

The phrase “American Century” is attached to the name of Henry Luce of “Time”, based on his essay by that name.

A cogent analyst of the life cycle of this supposed “American Century”(1941-2008) is Professor Jeffrey Frieden of Harvard.

The analysis, while intelligent, is defective because the transition is not from an American to a Chinese or Asian century, as everyone keeps repeating ad nauseam, but to an American-led Global Century.

In order to lead the world into this Global century, America needs intensive cooperation with non-Europeans and Muslims.

This means that the real way to an American-led Global Century which is neither post-American nor anti-American is via Palestine.

The inability of America to rein in the neocons in Washington and the Israel Right lead by Netanyahu, indicates that American can’t or won’t get past the neocolonial settler project of rightwing Zionism which is in fact calculated to antagonize the entire Muslim world and bring about a “conflict of civilizations.”

Thus Palestine is not “another Belfast” or “another Kashmir” but the indispensable gateway to a kind of American Century II at the head of a sustainable global economy.

Dear reader,

We have issued the following note which is available on our website under the heading “Talking point”:

Emerging markets capital flows – how are the BRIC countries faring and coping?

The last two “super-cycles” in private capital flows to emerging markets lasted almost exactly seven years. This suggests that the current upswing in capital flows may only be in its early stages. The level of capital flows to the BRICs differs markedly, as do their policy responses in terms of currency appreciation, reserve accumulation and capital controls. Brazil will continue to face a far greater temptation to tighten capital controls – and prevent currency appreciation – than the other BRIC countries…
