Does This Map Show the Death of Western Civilization?

Brookings Institution Global MetroMonitor Map of World Economies - RF CafeIf you live in western Europe or the U.S., there is a good reason you probably feel like the future has moved on to other places. This new interactive Global MetroMonitor Map of World Economies by the Brookings Institution indicates the economic health of 300 cites based on how they are affected by the recession and their growth rate over specified periods. Bluish indicates strong health and reddish is in the loo. You don't need a larger version of the map (but go ahead and click on it anyway) to see which parts of the world are doing things right. Hint: It isn't the U.S and Europe. Asia and Central America - the places that make nearly everything we buy - are winning. While the winners concentrate on strong national policies for their citizens, we funnel the resources of society's producers to whiny and militant special interest groups. Demonizing everything that Western society built and worshiping everything else is the cause du jour. It's taught in our schools and promoted by wealthy government bureaucrats who are deeply invested in foreign concerns. If you like it this way, do nothing.

About RF Cafe

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
