    All empires collapse - just look at the historical precedent. And, as always, the world will go on.

    It is difficult to say. China might take the lead.
    Throughout history, empires came into being and disappeared, and the world went on - with more or less disorders.

    Depends on the collapse. If we just stop being so powerful militarily and no longer have any especial economic clout, then I imagine we'll mostly be ignored like a worse version of the love-child of Canada and Australia.

    Not a matter of if but when. No empire has ever survived when it spread itself as thin as the US has and had massive debt to boot.

    I meant to click other but anyhow China would take a big hit to there pockets the trade for them would be down. To everyone who we owe a debt to they would take a hit to there pockets because they wouldnt ever get any money back. then there would probably be wars on who owns the place because of debt issues

    I guess America will become the navel of the universe, or at least where it was before it collapsed. Is that what happened to Atlantis?

    It'd be chaotic at first, but the world would move on. It always does.

    China probably will become the biggest economic power, I believe China would abandon the last ideals of it's 'communist party" and move on to capitalism, the reason I believe this is because I've lived in China, and it really ain't Communist at all. It has a capitalist culture by nature, though some government officials hold very authoritarian views which is why you get some ridiculous laws, I believe those views would start to die with the next generation too as the younger generation of China is quite frustrated with the "old ways" of the government.

    More pressure would be put on China to improve human rights and become more modern with the influence of the European Union, since a lot of business will take place between them. China would have the biggest military so they might try to threaten Europe with that, but honestly, I don't think even China would want to risk a world war with one of the biggest economic markets in the world either because there wouldn't be any benefit for them apart from "showing off".

    I'm not sure who would take over the land of America, I have a feeling Canada would want to snatch some Northern states, some European nations would gather some states of the coast, and I guess there'd be some disagreements over that.

    That's a pretty good assessment.

    China, off course, has it's own problems (e.g. too many people, not enough food, uneven boy/girl birth rates across the county, rapidly aging population, unbelievably high superficial housing costs in the cities, government owning the land, horrible pollution, etc.), but despite all that, it's sitting on an accrued monetary surplus bigger than any nation in the world, and exports somewhat more than it imports (lots of food, off course).
    Hopefully, the wealth will eventually trickle down to China's general population and raise their standard of living. I would look to Japan and Germany as well in terms of taking over the leading spot.

    You're right, China won't threaten the EU. I don't think they're that dumb. That might happen, in my humble opinion, only if something extremely radical happens in China again, and they get a new "iconic" leader in absolute control. Otherwise, their strategy is to beat everyone economically, and so far, they are winning.
