Being the top nation in all fields, the United States' leadership is sometimes criticized but remains undisputed nevertheless. The arrival of Barack Obama as president in 2008 created resounding hope in the world. In a constitutional state such as the United States, there seem to be different levels of freedom. Millions of people were out in the street because of the traders; some grow richer and richer in an insolent manner.
Despite everything, the United States remain a fantastic human laboratory, and maybe the new configuration that seems to be emerging in the new world order will once again have Uncle Sam as its epicenter.
