The war in Iraq is over; the war in Afghanistan is winding down. Americans' thoughts have turned inward, toward our stubborn domestic problems: high unemployment, the sluggish economy. But the world won’t wait for America to solve its own problems.
Some argue that our global leadership has waned, but Ian Bremmer argues that the United States' role in the international community isn't over, it’s just different. Today’s international order must be one of strategic partnerships and compromises, Bremmer argues, such as President Obama’s so-called "leading from behind" strategy in Libya.
Ian Bremmer is president of the Eurasia Group and author of "Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World."
