This travel drives domestic a strong argument: that countries' good fortune relies overwhelmingly on their skill to reinvent the country. And that a lot of the West—and quite the United States—is failing badly in its activity. China is making fast growth with executive reform whilst the USA is falling badly in the back of.

The clearest modern precedent of a hegemon is the British Empire, which maintained order on the high seas during much of the nineteenth century, and which also controlled many smaller states by virtue of its financial and economic dominance. All or nearly all states benefited from freedom of the seas, which Britain protected by defeating pirates and deterring states that sought to exert greater control over the seas. Britain could also prevent some small states from starting regional wars and took the leading role in the abolition of the international slave trade.
The increasing economic integration of the world does not solve global collective action problems; it simply creates a new set of them. To be sure, Angell did not believe — nor do his modern-day followers — that economic integration would solve all the world’s problems. The point, for present purposes, is that even if some global problems can be solved with little or no cooperation, others cannot. Ideological Integration The theory of economic integration does not purport to solve global collective action problems; it is instead a theory that at least some such problems do not really exist because they, or some of them, will disappear as long as states act in their self-interest.
The UN charter is also often thought to be fundamental in this sense, and hence, a constitutional document. State consent, then, must yield to morally appealing constraints on human rights abuses and aggression. 12 In practice, the norms yield when states do not consent to them. It is an important and interesting fact that states have not, for the most part, repudiated these norms in official declarations. But, while agreeing that jus cogens norms exist, states have not been able to agree on what the content of these norms are, for the most part, or to their application in specific settings, so the category is largely empty.
