1. Kicking our ass with our money. If I were advising them, I'd say go balls out around

the world being the good guy. They are already doing some of that. Plus do everything possible to raise their peoples standard of living. They will need to make them the kind of consumer market we have been.

They have everything they need to be the dominant world power now. I can see them taking over a lot of the military and food aid we supply or used to. Nothing ever said that was ours to keep forever.
