Who keeps the global peace? If not the U.S., then who? For years now, we’ve lived in the Pax Americana, a time of relative peace enforced by the military might of the United States. The U.S. acts as a global policeman, a deterrent to keep others in line. But many Americans have tired of this role, wanting to “mind their own business” instead. And as America withdraws, China claims more of the South China Sea, Russia invades its neighbors and menaces Europe, and Iran expands its nuclear capabilities. There are big questions to consider. Is there a downside to America’s retreat? What happens in a world with no deterrent, no global policeman to keep others in check? Can the world afford for America to mind its own business? Can America? Join noted author and Cato Institute Senior Fellow Johan Norberg as he investigates. Check out our Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/FreeToChooseN...

Is America in Retreat?
When the U.S. assumed the PAX, it assumed responsibility for global order, but for how long? Just how deeply entangled should America be in the world’s affairs? What alternatives are there to being the world’s policemen? Is there really a downside to retreat? And in the absence of the U.S., how might global order be maintained – or decimated? In a companion documentary to America in Retreat by The New York Times’ Pulitzer Prize winning Op-Ed columnist Bret Stephens, Free To Choose Executive Editor and Cato Senior Fellow Johan Norberg examines the questions facing a nation leaning back toward isolationism.
