Why did we get 'Nixon Shock'? Because USA military was defeated by Vietnam. No other reason. People  ...

The military is not the only reason that needs to be factored in when we talk about world hegemony.

The Soviets had at least an equal military vis a vis the U.S. at one point in time in the 1960s, but not many people could spell the name of their currency -- the ruble.

But in the main the USD and the U.S. military are the twin pillars of American hegemony in the world.  

Just as no liquid can stay at its boiling point forever, American hegemony is not likely to last forever now that for the first time after WWII, its economy is in great trouble.

The American economy is supported by the rich.
Markets in the States are at an all time high.
But, conditions for average Americans are crumbling.
In another thread,  a "minimum wage" worker needs 2.5 FULL time jobs to support a 1 bedroom apt.
This can NOT be sustained in the long term.
The signs are appearing all over the US as we speak, with the growing number of homeless.
It is a matter of time, when there will be riots and wholesale looting.
and American military will be called into action to protect the wealthy.
