The U.S. is no longer in economic decline, but it’s foreign policy is, says Eurasia Group. America’s allies perceive the U.S. as being weaker than in years past and see a reduced role for the nation in global decision-making. That will impact America’s relationships with various nations in different ways. For instance, don’t expect America’s second-tier allies, like Germany, Turkey, and Indonesia to align too closely with the U.S., says Eurasia Group. That could have huge implications -- and cost the U.S. -- in different ways (such as corporations facing a tougher international landscape and a weakening of international standards).
